It is Saturday and our final weekend here at Leiston Abbey, Saints & Secrets 2013!

Things are definitely speeding up as all our Venturers try hard to clean up their sections and find out what is happening in their trenches. The finds are coming thick and fast as today we have discovered two coins coming from Trench Seven as well as some great evidence for beer making from Trench Six! The ditch from Trench Three is still being recorded and we think that it matches up with the prehistoric ditch from Trench One, which tells us a lot about this area of the site and shows us that the whole field has been around for a lot longer than we thought when we first arrived!

We have a whole heap of new Venturers who are here for the day or the weekend and are really getting stuck into the trenches, learning how to read the soil and get their hands dirty!

We also have the end of site party tonight- with stripy jumpers and disco lights ready to go – so expect sore heads for our last day of digging tomorrow. Tune in tomorrow to see who survives the evening!
