Buttway Field, St Helen's Church Dig, Cliffe, Kent. Day 9

Sunday day 9 and again it was a tough day of digging today, but we have a really great group of people, and the sun continued to shine.... The North end of the trench we are seeing some finds including pot and tile coming out from the deeper deposits. If the previous test pit data is correct in this area, we should start to see the archaeology (highlight by our resistivity survey) present near the church wall.  

In the South end of the trench we are working hard to clean back the demolition layer to reveal the faced flint and chalk/lime mortar. This is a painstaking process because of the risk of disturbing possible in situ features. Over the next few days we should see more of the layer revealed and we can make better sense of whats going in an area that covers half the trench.

Remember if you want to know more about what we are doing then feel free to come along and ask question or even take part. We are onsite tomorrow 9.30am/5pm.
