The team congregated at the Wessex and set off for the Aven dig on a warm humid evening.
Seán did most of the digging. Cookie stacked spoil and collected rocks for the dry stone walling around the spoil heap. How high can we make it before it collapses again? Rich and Will manoeuvred the bags in between. Half way through the evening Will and Cookie swapped. We removed approximately 15 heavy bags of spoil.
Digging up Seán has met a layer of fist sized rocks. Hopefully this is the same layer we have seen when digging down from above.
