Experimental archaeology 7: 1970

Posted by Picasa
This morning a cracker from the Dixon vault. Phil has very kindly unearthed and sent to me this shot of Baz Roscoe and Dave Fine engaged in reconstructing the building of the rampart. Doubtless Phil will be able to tell us whether or not they set fire to their handiwork after they had completed the construction in order to simulate the demise of the rampart and demonstrate whether or not burning resulted in red and grey burnt limestone. From 1970.
