Fifth week of excavation

Photo 1

Wednesday morning; low-level aerial photography with the support of a helicopter (photos are being developed), and for seeing the site in its wider landscape setting.

Photo 2

A view of Sutton Common from the east, slowing the
trenches and the smaller enclosure in the background. The
woods in the foreground belong to Rushy Moor SSSI, with
Shirley Pool just visible in the bottom left-hand corner.

Photo 3

Another shot from the east, showing Shirley pool in
its entirety.

Photo 4

Sutton Common from the south, showing the site and
the palaeochannel extending southwards. Small patches of
standing water allow for easy mapping of the palaeochannel here.
