    Nice!

    What was the age of the pottery coming out of that test pit?

    well we still have to read the pottery. the seal off hand looks likely to be Late Bronze Age, but it will need to be analyzed further to know more precise dating. Also, since these pits are topsoil, the pottery will be mixed and most likely won’t give any clue to the dating
