The archaeology under the milking parlour floor is leading to new questions. Here are some photos of the east side of the extant barn, the interior of an extant bay, and the outline of a wall underneath the milking parlour floor. Take a look at the shape of the extant bay–see the point in the back where the walls come together in a kind of triangle? Now look at the photo below left.
See the similar shape? We’re wondering if this could have been another bay, only this one had its opening facing to the south. And if that is true, were there more bays facing south, and was this an L-shaped structure?
Hopefully, we’ll be able to answer some of these questions, but even if the answers aren’t quick in coming, we’ve learned so much!
This wraps up the archaeology for this week, but we hope to have more information for you next week, and more information on this project as we move forward. Keep coming back for the latest news!
