Well, as readers will have perceived the morale of the teams is high, despite baking heat, thunder and lightning and the mercurial and arbitrary decisions of the bosses.
Seriously, everyone has done incredibly well. Finds are telling an interesting story, including the Roman and medieval material found redeposited in Steve’s trench, which tells the ancient landscape in which the war was fought. Meanwhile, the structures show us much about how much the armies changed the geography between 1914 and 1918, sometimes in ways we didn’t expect, such as the concrete guttering or the reuse of much older landscape features.
Two more digging days to go and still much to expect, including the solution to the mystery of what lies beneath the timber in Jon’s trench.
Keep Watching!
