Springfield Farm Dig, June 2018

A good two weeks. The weather was kind, and as expected, there were lots of pot sherds to wash, from possible medieval to around 1660, but most importantly we uncovered what is possibly a kiln or a pot stack.  Also resistivity shows a path leading to the work area.

Thanks to everyone who took part, and very special thanks to Jeff – a new member, who as a former archaeologist gave us more in depth training.
