Trowels in the ground at Hobbs Hill

On 17 April, under the supervising and experienced eye of Yvonne Edwards of Chess Valley Archaeology and History Society, a team of willing AAG diggers put three trenches across the earthwork at Hobbs Hill and investigated the possible saw pit to the south of the earthwork.  

All four excavations fought their way through the tree-root and leaf-mould layer, progressively recording the layers and finds. One trench has uncovered bottles and metal fragments, probably left by a 19th-century forestry worker, and another trench has reached the underlying chalk.
Much more remains to be discovered. Watch this space...
