Test Pit 2

Day 1 – The photographers arrive to find the Test Pit 2 team hard at work!  Martin, John, Christine and Will assure us that they had only just stopped for tea!

Day 2 – Here’s the teapot and mugs, all ready for action.  The team, ably supervised by Will, were certainly hard at work this time.  Chrissie’s technique for getting down to the bottom of the pit seemed an excellent idea.  An archaeologist came to look at some of the finds they had dug up and to decide whether it was worth going down a further layer, but decided that was sufficient.  By the end of the day they had reached Spit 5.
