Sian Thomas: Archaeology and Excavation

Sian Thomas, site supervisor, gave a quick summary of the archaeology at the Berkeley excavations and some information about the goings on at the dig. The biggest job at the moment is clearing out the ditch, possibly from the Anarchy Period, for final photos and this is requiring lots of hard work from the team here.The final recording of the ditches is also taking place.

We have had lots of visitors down to site today and it has been very busy. Paul Driscoll, the South Gloucestershire County archaeologist, was given a tour around the site with Stuart Prior. We are looking forward to a visit from the Agincourt Society later on today because on of the flag bearer from the battle is being buried near Berkeley and the 600th anniversary of the battle occurring later on this year.
