Thursday 26th July, Our Last Day

Hey Guys!

 Well today was our last day working over here in the Scilly Isles. Tomorrow we will be heading back to the mainland after a brilliant month!

We were working on Tean and Samson today. This mostly involved backfilling our trenches, which means putting all the soil that we have dug out back in. Although this covers up the archaeology, which is a shame, it is the only way to preserve it properly. If we left it open it may be broken or washed away. In the deepest part of the trench we put modern things at the bottom such as a milk carton and a coin. This is so that if someone else digs in the same place they will know when it was last dug. That waythey wont be confused by the layers of soil on top, which are all mixed up. It rained heavily today so we got very wet, but it felt good once we had finished.

I have really enjoyed coming over here and meeting some of you. Hopefully I will be able to come over next year and see you again. The Isles of Scilly have to be some of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Those of you who live here are very lucky!

 Hope you have enjoyed reading this blog!
