Recording

Everything that we found had to be recorded

The level was used to determine the relative heights of features and things excavated

Detailed plans were drawn on polyester film - a waterproof and stable transparent paper

Plans were drawn using tapes and planning frames

Photographs were taken of all excavated features

All excavated features were also described in writing

Phil set up the wet sieving station, where she examined samples of soil for small finds, bones, seeds, etc

Finds were shown to Amanda, the Finds Supervisor, and their positions recorded before being put into bags and taken up to the temporary finds room for cataloging
