Charlwood Excavation 2019

In November 2019 the final season at this muddy site took place. The intention was only to complete excavating a few features which had been left unfinished in 2018 when the team had to leave the site due to the deeply unpleasant conditions caused by the ‘Beast from the East’. Fortunately November 2019 was rather kinder and in spite of some rainy days there were enough dry ones for the work to take place within few days.

Post-excavation work will now take place and some expert reports sought before a paper can be submitted to the Collections.

My thanks must go to those intrepid volunteers who helped to finish the excavation during November 2019: David Calow, Emma Corke, Mary-Jane Dawson, Jen Newell, Christine Pittman, Mairi Sargent and Ken Waters.

Interim reports can be found in Bulletins 431, 457, 463 and 468
