Shell shock!

We have opened up a new trench just to the east of the main site so as to look at a possible feature running north-south across the field.

Even though our structure is not that old it was still made of material that would have been at the bottom of a sea millions of years ago:

Meanwhile, the main site has finally been stripped of overburden and the walls are beginning to see the light of day:

The structure that started all this has also been finally dug out:

Now comes the time to record and then dig the rubble dump. Oh happy day! But at least we will then begin to see the walls in all their glory. Let's hope that the sun returns, as we have been valiantly working in some rather damp conditions of late:
Nothing worse than a damp droopy hat
