Open day on site: Saturday 18 August 2012

On site: Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews, Caoimhín Ó Coileáin, Amelia Weatherill, Amy Saunders, Arlene Walker, Ashley Tierney, Bernie Matthews, David Sims, Eden Walker, Emily Bloom, Frances Bourne, Frankie Saxton, Ivor Davies, Jan Turner, Jane Males, Jane Williams, Jon Goodwyn, Julie Martin, Keeley Hale, Liz Hart, Lyall Watson, Molly Barron, Nigel Harper-Scott, Pauline Gimson, Rachel Mills, Susan Richmond, Tony Driscoll, Zoë Uí Coileáin

Weather: sunny, hot (22° at 9.30!) and only a light breeze

We have a good turnout today, which means that we will be doing more excavating than I had anticipated. The final recording is taking place in the Roman ditch, allowing everyone else (apart from Jon, who is on the ring ditch) to work on the henge. As well as the inner ditch and the sondage, a team is working on (199), the topsoil-like material over much of the southern part of the henge.
