A few items from last month's excavation.

All the above still need a lot more cleaning and conservation work.

A great weekend camped up on the 490th BG bomb stores
Excavating more dump sites we had discovered, many interesting
Finds came to light from the pit, despite the puncture on the
Main tyre of Malcolms digger Sunday which halted proceedings
We still had a great day & the weather broke into brilliant
Sunshine making for a superb BBQ laid on by Nigel. Not sure
How many bottles of Scotch we demolished over the weekend,
I'm sure that Mr B had a good half bottle to help him sleep through
Nigels snoring!

I will post some more pictures when I get a chance

Next stop.....Weybread...

Looks like you found some interesting stuff there. How can I help with digs or such like?
Been into this stuff for many years, but never been on a dig!

Many thanks!
