Caroline Jackson and Jim Reid, from the University of Sheffield, carried out potfiring in an open bonfire - a technique which may have been common during the Neolithic and Bronze Age. A number of pots were successfully fired though some ended with explosive results!
|The fire, with preventative trench...||The clay is carefully shaped...|
|The unfired pots are placed in the fire...||..and start to bake|
Tours of the surrounding landscape and of the excavations were also extremely popular with our various tour guides, Doug, Anne-Marie and Dave rushed off their feet.
|It's all go for the tour guides, as we receive record numbers of visitors over the weekend|
