Preparing for the summer dig

Topsoil stripping began on Wednesday 4 July and has continued for the past couple of days. I’ve not been able to observe the stripping, but I’ve heard that interesting things are turning up. There’s a posthole close to the centre of the henge with what appears to be the carbonised remains of the post it once held surviving in situ. The rectangular enclosure has also been located, with a gap in the ditch where the geophysical surveys suggest it ought to be. Things are looking promising for the excavation, which will begin on Wednesday 11 July.
