Yes today a 1m x 1m test pit is being dug in my back garden.
It is part of a heritage project to find out more about the ancient village I live in. We live in a 400 year old house on the edge of the old village so it will be interesting to see if we can find out when this part of the village was first inhabited.
So far we have found a wall. Nothing exciting I’m afraid as it’s a single course of bricks from a 20th century greenhouse! The pit is now 20cm deep and is going down layer by layer. I’ll update you when I have more info and possibly add pics too 18 months ago
