Open Day

Never mind horses, today it rained cats and dogs. Given th fabulous weather for the excavation the fact that autumn arrived with a vengeance today wa a bit of a shock. Not to be put off though, those that arrived for the open day today had lots to see. many of the excavation finds were displayed by project lead archaeologist, Julian Richards, whilst Richard Broadhead brought finds from the western front alongside his 'recruiting booth'. As it was a little colder that we were used to WW1 Range Stew and Anzac biscuits were a vital moral piece (thanks to Jay for this), and perhaps the stars of the show were the 18lb artillery piece and the Model T with Lewis Gun and support soldiers - adding to the overall WW1 feel of the day. Well done all
