Not much to report today. The weather was dire and it poured down with rain all day. In the morning the students did sterling work washing and marking up pot and other bulk finds from last year's excavation, for which they were rewarded with cake! In the afternoon Jamie provided them with a lecture on how to use context recording sheets. Disappointing to lose the impetus from the last two days, but an inevitable part of the English summer. PS: The picture is from yesterday - it was too wet to get my camera out today!
