Right… where are we!
Oh yes… scraping down and down onto an orangy clayey silt!
Trenches 1 and 3 and now returfed – though why oh why does the turf not fit! we end up with enough left over to turf another trench!
Trench 2 (the castle trench) continues down, with a plaintive cry of, the castle wall, must be here somewhere! A mound of rubble fragments seems to come from a later collapse. Hard Hats on everyone!
Trenches 4 and 5 are opened to cope with the numbers of people now on site.. aged 4 – 82…
We are starting to get a feeling that the 1700s saw a MASSIVE bit of demolition and even the removal of all teh bedrock that the castle sat on! … This is what its all about!
