Tintagel Castle - Archaeological Dig - Day 4

Day 4 and the adventure continues at Tintagel Castle.

Today started with site tour, a brief study of the other additional ruins on the island served as a comparison to the evidence emerging in the trench and help with the interpretation of what we are seeing, buildings wise.

More pottery fragments coming out of the trench today, and heading off to be cleaned. 

Ryan gets ready to measure the position of today’s finds so far.

Here is a wide view of our 'Trench Mark' on Tintagels Castles Southern Terrace. We are still cleaning through the layers, exposing collapsed wall which once recorded and plotted, we can lift to search for the buried floor surface below.

Archaeology on the edge!

 My last find for today, a burnt flint stone pebble, the inside has turned white.
