While Trench 1 is at the level where archaeology is abundant, those working in Trench 2 have to dig deep for the features. And dig they do. As always at Old Place there are finds a-plenty to keep the momentum going. Today, a Roman coin in Trench 1, some pottery (could there be an Iron Age sherd among the pieces?) and features - a beam slot perhaps - certainly a ditch, and all in the vicinity of the magnificent walls that showed up on Day 1. There will be loads to see at the Open Day on Sunday 8th November.
Tonight at The Hub the group hosted a fascinating talk by Dr Michael Jones, former City of Lincoln Archaeologist and international expert on Roman Britain. In his talk ‘Lincoln in its Hinterland’ Michael summarised the archaeology of the city and looked beyond the city walls to the development of Roman Lincolnshire. In addition to the known finds Michael discussed various new methods of researching Roman Britain. There will be plenty for the group to undertake to learn
more about Old Sleaford’s heritage.
