Another great day- lots of people, lots of work. In Trench 1, the small extension to the trench we put in this season which has proved so problematic has now resolved itself into a substantial wall, probably of medieval date. It joins the south-east corner of the now absent medieval building and may be somehow relate, although I doubt it is another structure.
Nearby there was work going on dismantling the probably medieval features on top of the barrack block. Along the se side of the embankment there was good work unpicking the drain feature, traces of which may also be starting to emerge on the ne side too in the area where there has been lots of cleaning back. Other activity in this trench includes unpicking features along the outside of the barrack, including an area with very heavy iron staining- perhaps evidence for industrial activity.
