Trench 4 with GPS. Trench 3 and 5 showing why the settlement gets flooded, as it is sited below the valley from the moorland above Holwick Scars.
Apologies for not posting a blog yesterday, I totally forgot to take any images!

Both Trenches 4 and 5 are effectively complete. Just a few stones to remove in Trench 5 to see if anything of importance is underneath. Final photogrammetry has been taken Trench 5 which will be processed tomorrow all being well. Trench 3 is scheduled to be photographed tomorrow.
