Which theory has stood the test of time?   Last small area being cleaned before we wrap up Trench 3.
Day 14 and the first drops of serious rain for the last hour of the working day. Trench 4 has now been backfilled, and after lunch we recorded the last feature in Trench 5 and started backfilling that trench too.

Talking of Trench 5, the final overhead image of Trench 5 is shown above left. Above right: Alan is practicing his 'bowling technique' whilst backfilling the stones into Trench 5.

Image below left: You can tell when an excavation is reaching a conclusion when the head scratching rate increases - often something to do with context sheets and stratigraphy - well it is for me!
