1 1975: Digging of an overflow sump in the back garden of a house on Main Street revealed an area of buried paving at a depth of 1m below the present ground surface. This extended over the whole of the 2.4m by 1.8m area of the excavation. It seemed possible that this represented the floor of a building, but there was no trace of walls or occupation material.

Word or Phrase
technique excavation Archaeologists excavate sites so that they can find information and recover archaeological materials before they are destroyed by erosion, construction or changes in land-use.

Depending on how complicated and widespread the archaeological deposits are, excavation can be done by hand or with heavy machinery. Archaeologists may excavate a site in a number of ways; either by open area excavation, by digging a test pit or a trial trench.
