Buttway test pits preliminary finds analysis

The trustees got together yesterday to label and quantify the numerous finds from our three May 2016 bank holiday excavations.

Further specific detailed analysis by trench / context layer, as well as dating & identification of the pottery is to follow to give us a better understanding of time periods covered bearing in mind that the sole purpose for the test pits was to confirm the geophysical survey data prior to our main excavation in July.

Consequently we deliberately did not excavate much more than 50 cm down in any of the test pits in order to preserve the archaeology that we revealed, in the meantime we'd like to share our initial findings with you.
