We started the day with a visit to the site. We talked about what a significant space it felt with the trees all round it. It is the first time Gemma had seen it so it was useful to get the fresh response. Because I’ve been working on this piece for over a year, I’ve forgotten the initial impact of the location.
Now it just looks like a piece of heathland, but in a few weeks it will look more like the trench in my last post, although they are all different, depending on what is found when the dig is underway.
This will be the seventh barrow to be excavated. I am getting familiar with the process and more confidant about when I can push to gain access to the trench.
