The second excavation day started with a cloudy sky and a few rainshowers. This made our work a little more difficult because of the wet soil sticking to and clogging up the the sieves.
At the sieve.
Digging the sandy soil of Vävarsbacka II.
Typical comb ceramic ware (rimsherd)
Corded ware (rimsherd)
More asbestos tempered ware!
Before continuing into excavation layer two the excavation areas were mapped and photographed. Of special interest were three postholes at a regular distance from each other. The potholes coud indicate that a building of some sort once stood on the site.
Cleaning the area before documentation.
The possible postholes marked with yellow pegs.
After documentation the excavation continued on both excavation areas. Numerous finds from both areas indicate that excavation day three (tomorrow) will probably be a very exciting one!
The excavation continues.
The excavation continues again tomorrow @ 10 am :)
