Behind the Scenes: Post-Excavation Processing
Having finished the first season of excavations at Rendlesham this summer, our volunteers have started the post-excavation work on the excavated material at the Cotswold Archaeology warehouse in Needham Market, as part of our community archaeology project Rendlesham Revealed.
The post-excavation process involves several different tasks, which our volunteers have been undertaking since November. This includes, washing and marking the finds, processing the soil samples and recording and packaging the Registered Artefacts.
The post-excavation phase is almost complete and next steps will involve sending the finds and flots from the soil samples to specialists for assessment
The next season of archaeological fieldwork will take place in Summer 2022 and local people will again be able to volunteer. This will be advertised in the Archaeology News in Suffolk e-newsletter nearer the time.
Find out more about the excavations and other fieldwork taking place as part of the Rendlesham Revealed project in the “Rendlesham Community Fieldwork” section on our website
