Day 23 – Wednesday 19th July

Julian presenting the story of what we’ve found on Dorstone Hill this year.

If its Wednesday then it must be lecture time, and this evening it was standing room only as Julian presented a ‘what we’ve found’ lecture to a packed village hall. Even after extra chairs had been bought in and the side doors opened there was still a squash and a squeeze to get everyone in!

If you’ve been following the blog, then much of what Julian presented has passed across the pages. He highlighted the character of the ditch segments and the post holes we think run across part of Trench seven, and the really interesting finds from Trench six, such as the large amount of Rock Crystal.

There were lots of questions from the floor as people showed great interest in the project’s results to date. Many were looking forward to the team returning next year, almost as much as Julian and Keith are! Hopefully the project will continue but we’ll have to wait and see what happens as there are major changes afoot at Manchester University!

Many people have asked for images of the site, so in the gallery below are some of the great images taken by Adam Stanford and his drone.
