Barrow Cemetery Dig - Day 6
by Anne Coombs - 18:04 on 06 September 2019
Day 6 Today a simple site report as we are finishing the first clean back and lots of photos and tomorrow we begin to get down to the nitty gritty of excavation. One student found his first post hole which is always a cause for celebration but generally today it was quiet satisfaction of a job progressing nicely.
The main focus of tonight’s blog is to give you a flavour of what we might have at Tarradale. Below are several links to sites with upstanding ‘Pictish’ burial sites, only one of which has been partially excavated. Also there is a link to an article by Juliette Mitchell and Gordon Noble on Pictish burial sites, and links to two Pictish burial articles on the NOSAS Blog.
