Rain doesn’t stop play!

Despite the rain, excavation and recording has continued. As wet weather makes the features more visible on the chalk, the numerous postholes are beginning to make sense. We have now established that there are at least three more four-post structures to add to the one found last year. These structures are commonly found on prehistoric settlement sites and are thought to have been grain stores. They would have built as small square huts or sheds supported above ground by posts in order to keep out vermin.

Below are pictures of two of these structures, the posts have been highlighted in red. And yes, the blurred splodges on the pictures are rain drops!
