Back to the day job!

7th December 2015: A fine ditch excavated by yours truly on a site in North Somerset. The pottery recovered from the fills would suggest a Roman/Romano-British date. There’s quite a lot going on with cuts and re-cuts. The slot measures c.4m width, c.1m length and c.0.9m depth and took a couple of days to excavate. The underlying geology is Head – Clay, Silt, Sand and Gravel, these are Superficial Deposits formed during the Quaternary Period; these deposits, in turn overlie bedrock of Mercia Mudstone Group formed during the Triassic Period. Scale: 2 x 1 metre.
