Crown Lynn archaeology

Post  TonyK on Tue 25 Jan - 23:35

I thought I'd already posted this here somewhere but now can't find it. Please let me know if it's a duplicate. It shows building works at one of the Crown Lynn sites. You can see what I'd call a wasters pit looking like a midden with lots of shards.


This is the doorway to another Crown Lynn building, made up lots of very small tiles:

Yes, as glaze is really glass and broken glass is ever so sharp!!
Marcus sent me a heap of fantastic pics of the Big Dig 2011 that you two did, to put on the site.
How awesome that you had a window of opportunity to rake around a building site that was once a part of Crown Lynn! I would have really enjoyed doing that too!!!!!!
