Lees Court Excavation - Bexley YAC with Fred Birkbeck

 

On Saturday 7th September Bexley YAC took part in the KAS excavation at Lees Court. Our aim (apart from excavation) was to fulfil some of our BAJR passport skills, with Fred’s help, especially the geophis and surveying.

Fred gave us a tour of the site and an excellent explanation of what the archaeology was being interpreted as. We learnt a lot about how we date early periods from the tools people used.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We walked over to the other part of the site and Fred explained what the geophis had shown. He discussed the five hoards and their significance and why the trench was so big!

Our younger YACs stayed here and looked for pieces of pot sherds.

 

 

 

 

 

Our older YACs were using a dumpy level for surveying with Rachael (one of our leaders).
