This day was a rainy one but thanks to the hard working crew it turned out very good! Lot´s of great finds too (well preserved neolithic pottery, another intriguing crystal an unfinished flint arrowhead and a beautiful fragment of a neolithic slate ring fragment (according to grave finds these were probably used as dress ornaments).
Digging in the rain (our tent covers an area of only 10 x 3 meters so space became a problem at the end of the day :)
