The latest exciting adventure was a very kind invitation from DigVentures to help explore the gatehouse of Pontefract Castle.
Another promising prospect is a brand new permission to survey a large area that looks to be Bronze Age or Late Iron Age.
LiDAR images reveal a large pentagonal enclosure with other anomalies showing as terracing and large ditches running from the enclosure.
Back to the Pontefract Dig, and the first levels were removed to reveal lots of expected modern items with three artefacts recovered in the form of; a musket ball and grapeshot from the English Civil War and a fragment of C14th pottery showing the typical green glaze of the period.
We plan to return in a couple of weeks to see what else lies in the earth at Pontefract Castle.
