Too wet to dig

On site: nobody

Weather: drizzle following very heavy overnight rain

We can’t dig today: Trench II is full of water at the lower (north-eastern) end while the others are so sticky that we would damage the archaeological deposits simply by walking on them. This is very unfortunate given the slowness of the project to date! Whatever the weather is like tomorrow, we will be on site, if only to record the sections across the henge!

I'm the Archaeology Officer for North Hertfordshire District Council Museum Service. I was born and brought up in Letchworth Garden City, so I have a life-long connection with the area.
