A Diggers Day No.2

When I moved to Dorset I was told that it never snowed here. Five out of six years it has snowed, and this year it has snowed again. On site today we had sleet, snow and blue sky's, all within a few minutes.

People used to say to me "archaeologists; you only work during the summer". This is how we have to work at in February:
But I had a consolation. I am working on the enclosure ditch and within a few strikes of a mattock I found this:

Some sherds of Black Burnished Ware (BBW). This is a slot through the ditch:

So, although the weather was changeable some nice bits of 2,000 year old pottery can brighten the day.
