It’s Saturday night and after a great open day the First Ship’s Project team have said goodbye to the last of our visitors. Hundreds of people visited the excavation, making it a huge day-out for the area.
The team continued to work, but also provided guided tours for the Horeke locals that joined us on this sunny Saturday. It reminded all of us how important it is to remember that this is their history, their story and heritage, and we have a responsibility to share our work.
No surprise either that people came with their own stories. Locals gave Matt invaluable knowledge about the site, helping him piece together the challenge. Another great day on the First Ships Project and another successful effort in Public Archaeology.
