Day Twenty

The penultimate day of excavation on site today, and what was expected to be a frantic time here in Ipplepen was eased hugely by the large numbers of new volunteers we have here on site. Work continued in the Bronze/ Iron Age pits with several volunteers under the supervision of Nick, who has been working on the feature steadily for the past month.The final bulk in the eastern ditch that runs into the ring ditch is still being removed, and a large amount of Bronze Age pottery has been coming out of that all day. By the end of the day both Marc and Ben were confident that we would have achieved our aims by tomorrow evening.

It was also a good day in the visitor center in the Hub, with a steady flow of visitors throughout the day, amounting to almost seventy in all.
