I've posted this picture before; it's the new drive up to our Tobacco drying barn (séchoir).
Yesterday I was taking some rubbish up to a bonfire when I noticed something white and shiney, half buried, half way up the incline. Looking at the picture, I would say that it would have been nearly a metre below the original surface.
I called Lady Magnon over to witness the dig, and set-to with my archaeologist's trowel; being cautious not to damage what I hoped was valuable buried treasure.
Above is what I unearthed; not some exquisitely carved ivory figure, but a set of animal teeth. No doubt the other set is there too, along with all the rest of its skeleton; but I'll leave that for posterity.
So what have I uncovered; any ideas? A Cow, a Horse, a Wooly Mammoth? (The pattern of display in the photo is just random)
NOTA BENE: 'Time Team' is an English TV programme, presented by a very small person who watches others dig up gardens/fields with no apparent aim or result.... At least I actually found something.
