Many hands make lighter work.

The dig began yesterday in grey weather that would later turn sunny. Our local volunteers as well as our students from Newcastle and Leicester spent the morning working up a sweat as we de-turfed our first trench. We’ve opened up a 10 x 10m area to start. It was a tough digging day especially as the wind picked up and it got hotter through the afternoon.

Today (Monday) Amber and Rachel had lots of fun at Laxey school with 64 students from year 4 and 5! We talked about archaeology, how we learn about the past and prehistoric burials before getting muddy cleaning finds. Afterwards we used our deductive reasoning skills to try and identify some finds!
