Day One - Excavations at Muncaster Castle, 2018

This year we are at Muncaster Castle, investigating the grounds just in case the Romans were here too.  Kurt and Bryan are back again, plus it's great to see Rowan return! 

After meeting up with the volunteers, we opened up two trenches: Trench 1 was laid out across a stone-lined culvert that had been located recently. Trench 2 was laid out to investigate an area of rubble nearby. We had managed to remove the topsoil in both trenches, despite occasional rainy spells.
