Rain stopped play

Today we headed out to Verulamium for our second day of survey.  We got off to a good start with eleven grids laid out and ready to go.  Before lunch, all went well and we re-did grid 2 from last week and did grids 6 and 7.  We stopped for lunch but by the time we started again it was drizzling.  Then it poured.  Yuck. Although the machine is shower-proof, the rain seemed just a bit too heavy to carry on so we abandoned play for today. What a shame.

The results looked good, however, and are posted below.  Interpretation of the results will be easier when we have the GIS data of what is already known about the town.  We can then overlay our results on the known plan.

Results of the second day of survey

As always, remember these are a crude overlay in Google Earth.  We’ll get more accurate positioning when the data is included in our project GIS.
