Day 4: Friday 5th September

The entrance trench at the end of the 4th day: all that effort washed away

The entrance trench at the end of the 4th day: all that effort washed away

I was unable to go to site on Friday but the team, James Lyall, Gigi Signorelli and the volunteers, battled with the wet again, work on cleaning the entrance trench AC began only to be abandoned when more rain fell. Signs of possible ruts through the entrance were rapidly made invisible by the rain but if they survive then the level of damage done by the bulldozer when the site was levelled in the 1960’s might be less that we thought at first (Figure 5). The driving rain lasted most of the day meaning that once again work on the augering had to be resumed. Let’s hope that the weather in week 2 will improve, as the site clearly has an important story to tell.
