Experimental archaeology 9: rampart destruction 1970

Posted by Picasa
Two splendid pictures from 1970 from Lydia Savage: Baz Roscoe, assisted by Dave Fine, created a rampart section and set fire to it to see if the meringue effect could be reproduced, during the 1970 season. It proved harder to fire than you might think. In the lower photo, Phil and Sonia and Christopher Hawkes who were visiting the site.
