House & Home

Not a lot came out of the site I was digging during July, as regards finds that is. But we did have an opportunity to do some reconstruction work on the Bronze Age house and this is the result:
View looking north
We stuck some metal pegs into the postholes and tied some wooden posts to them. My rather crude drawing shows that the posts formed a rather interesting pattern:
North is downward
I thought at first that the entrance was NE, but it is possible that it is facing south and that the triangular shapes are there to hold up a raised platform inside the building. 

All-in-all it was worth the effort. The rest of the site was ditch digging with little reward, apart from a B/A loomweight and some rather cruddy pot, one with finger marks on it, which was nice.
