A wet and windy day meant intermittent drawing, mainly in the shelter of the trenches.  It was good to get in close to the action and see real traces of Neolithic human activity.

A heap of burnt material piled up against a wall about 5,000 years ago, and iron deposits, which I could use to make pigments from a decaying stone.

A pit has been revealed with a bit of bone in it. Careful preparations for excavating further.

A sagging floor, where one building was built on top of another one.

The beginning and the end of the day. Keeping up with paper work records before continuing to excavate, and stacked buckets and wheelbarrows put away in the barn.
