FInds Workshop : 22 Oct

An enjoyable and productive day was spent at the Hub sorting through the material from our test pit excavations with the help of Appleby volunteers. An array of pottery, metal, glass, bone and clay pipe from all periods was washed and examined under expert guidance. An impressive assemblage of medieval pottery was revealed that will tell us much about the early town. Star of the day was our first prehistoric find – a broken flint blade from the garden of Lady Anne’s Hospital!
