A field untouched since the 17th century. 
A ‘mystery hump’...

We’ve been finding some incredible early medieval stone sculpture at #lindisfarnedig including the other half of a cross that we originally found in our first season over two years ago! Here is a fun animation we love by @mrwalternewton .

Today Karen is teaching Nisha and Katherine how to use magnetic susceptibility to identify areas of burning. This can help us to locate ancient hearths and areas that may have been used for industry. We’re using it to figure out what was going on in the building that we’ve found!

In Trench 2 who’re carrying on where we left off last year but these guys are excavating a WHOLE NEW trench as well. It’s where we believe the later medieval infirmary might have been, and so far it’s looking pretty exciting!

Doctor David Petts, surveying his archaeological kingdom from the top of the spoilheap at Lindisfarne. He’s spent much of his career studying early monastic sites in the North-East and has a special interest in Holy Island. He’s the reason we’re excavating here, cheers Dave!

It’s our day off! So here’s a throwback to getting the trenches open (and the bad weather out of the way), because tomorrow our crowdfunded dig in search of the famous monastery attacked by the Vikings continues. So exciting!

It’s our second day at #LindisfarneDig and Maddie has found a clench bolt! These things were used in the medieval period to bolt two pieces of wood together, and this one could have been from a boat or a coffin. Seeing as we’re digging near a cemetery on an island it could be either!
