Taking away the turf

Grävning schakt 1

The first day in the field is finished! It has been a hard day, taking away a grass cover of some 100 m2 in all. But we managed to finish that work just after coffe break in the afternoon, and even got some time to start to clean the trenches from the top soil. We can now clearly see the stone frame, foundation of the walls, of the medieval house. In the other trenches, several huge postholes are now visible at the surface.

A few pieces of early Medieval pottery, a horse shoe nail and some bones discovered so far in the top soil. Tomorrow is another day, and we will for certain get a clearer picture of the different house constructions, as well as new finds.
