Day 9 of the Living Water Project

Hello  Great Paxton Church followers….. I have posted  quite a lot of photos from Day 9 action on http://www.paxtonvic.wordpress.com …. but here are some more.

A young archeologist  from Andy came out from the Oxford Archeology Unit East based at Barhill and carefully took up the rest of the stones in the tower base which had been buried face down and brought them outside. He photographed many of them taking care to brush them and measure them first.

Sorry the pattern doesnt come out too well, but this stone has an interesting pattern and may have been a coffin lid?
