A final day of section drawing, planning, final photography and site records, soil sampling for environmental analysis, and backfilling. We were helped by the marvellous digger and roller team on kind loan from the WBCE Ltd. construction team at the Whitworth Art Gallery (thanks to Martin Coglan for facilitating this). Steve Flood (Manchester City Council) was also on hand to organise collection of our site huts and fencing, kindly provided by the Council in support of the dig.
After the tools were packed away, and all the finds and records returned to the laboratory, we celebrated with the digging team with a pint or two… it’s the end of a hot fortnight of hard work. Thanks to everyone who dug, visited or supported the project with their expertise and interest!
