Whithorn Big Dig: Primary Seven Pupils at Castle Hill

Today saw Whithorn Primary School’s primary 7 pupils coming to dig test pits on Castle Hill. Following their finds-handling session last week with AOC’s Andy Heald, they all knew what to look out for and were quick to spot even the smallest metal objects, sherds of pottery and glass. Of the pottery discovered, most dates to the late 18th and early 19th centuries, including some large sherds of a redware crock with white trail-slipped decoration. Well done everyone! We’ll post some pictures once the finds have been cleaned up.
