With Jon, Brockers and Nick
Jon digging, Brockers assisting, I went to the mid-way hauling position because Nick had gone on a quest to explore the ‘north-west passage’. Bags and the occasional rock were temporarily stashed at the mid-way point until Nick returned from his exploration. Actually, he had gone up to look at Trever Hughes old dig back in the 80s. On his return the back-log was soon cleared and we settled down to an evenly paced session. In between skips Nick fettled the ‘boardwalk’ and started to tidy-up the south-east chamber where TH had dumped most of the spoil from his dig. Willie Stanton, back in the 80s, suggested this might have been an area where bones could be found.
Eventually it was time to move back clear-out the filled bags (36 of them) to the surface where they could be emptied. The rocks were left for another day, the stone supply for wall building is growing steadily.
