Our two week-long excavation of a pair of stackstands near Hawes is now completed. Dig director and our Community Heritage Officer Douglas Mitcham was very pleased with the results and how much the volunteers achieved in spite of the appalling weather with high winds and heavy rain causing us to lose several days half way through.
On the final day, four of us bravely laboured through squalls of rain to backfill and returf the site to Doug’s satisfaction. Who said archaeology was glamorous?!
