Forty Hall - Festival Of Archaeology - Day 2
The excavation team made good progress today, with the weather looking set to make this year's dig a feat of endurance. We've now fully established the position of last year's trench and located the two parallel walls -- one large and the other small -- that we speculate may have formed a narrow passageway within the south end of the barn building.
We can now use these walls as a reference for locating conjectural points in the building outline to confirm (or not!) the layout and function of the building, and hope to begin answering some of the outstanding questions about this building and its history.
