Students and volunteers were briefed on the background of the site, health and safety and excavation protocol whilst the topsoil was removed and we came down onto archaeological deposits. After lunch, the whole team then began to clean back the area very carefully which will enable us to define archaeological features.

The Hub
We also set up our community information point at the Hub in Ipplepen Methodist Church. Our Hub displays look really good- please do pop in and see them. This year’s intern is Calyspo, who will be based at the Hub to explain the displays, help with children’s activities and provide daily updates about the excavation.

Thankyou to our students Calypso and Lowenna and Maria from Ipplepen Methodist Church for all their help putting up the Hub displays!
