Working up to the BBQ
Friday was the last weekday of the dig, and the team said thank you to the volunteers by putting on a barbecue (well done Angus and Christine) where we got together with some of those people we've worked with for a while over the last few weeks. Justin presented us all with certificates, well he put them on a chair and we helped ourselves, but it saves a lot of clapping, and it was hot. Somebody dug up a barrel of beer and a few bottles of wine - amazing finds on this site - together with orange juice for the work experience trainees and other teetotallers. I thought it best not to take embarrassing pictures of people drinking, so these pictures were taken shortly before, while inspectors from English Heritage were admiring our prize feature, the double sandstone mediaeval wall.
