Tintagel Castle - Archaeological Dig - Day 7

Tintagel Castle - Archaeological Dig - Day 7 - Time to take a tour of the site!

Trench Tristan on the Eastern Terrace, overlooking the bay. Remains of building walls appear to be emerging from the scatter of fallen stone.

Members of the team interpreting the top of Trench Tristan, after a Sondage (Trench within a trench - a deeper investigation of a small part of a larger trench) reveals a possible wall, which may have been robbed away.

A mixture of weather today, from bright blue skies and baking hot sun, to grumbling sea storms and crashing waves below.

A lot of flybys today, there must have been an air show in the area.

Trench Iseult, also on the Eastern Terrace, showing possible signs of a pathway, alongside natural bedrock and more scattered stone.

Trench Geraint, on the Southern Terrace, has revealed a variety of floor surfaces butting up against walls.

James takes aerial photos of the trenches.
