At 0830 Jezz Meredith and Richard Newman were on site on the most beautiful day, together with Simon the GPS man. Simon's job is to measure exactly where the trenches should go. His GPS machine is accurate to within 5 cm but unfortunately it was playing up! The area to be dug was determined and John arrived with his digger. John is amazing. He handles his giant machine with such precision. He took of about 30cm of topsoil down to the level where oyster shell can be seen. His work was finished by mid afternoon and Jezz could start the job of dividing the site into 2 metre squares. Richard meanwhile was looking for finds with his metal detector. He found a metal dolphin, a coin, and some pottery, all Roman. The coin is from the emperor Domitian who ruled from 81 to 96AD. We think it was dropped about AD120. You can see photos in the photo gallery and of course we will be doing a daily video. Have a look at he first one here. So we are nearly ready. The toilet has arrived but not the office or the bowser. Hopefully they will arrive on Friday. Not long now till Monday. Looking forward to seeing lots of you then.
