In the shadow of a burial mound

Friday and a coffee break on the mound...

The mound in question is recorded by GA Hellman from 1935; it can be seen as number 10 on the WebGis if one has the Hellman 1935 map on top right activated. The mound measures 17 x 11 m and has a slightly oval form. As can be seen from photo above it has a rather flat upper surface. In the trench we can now see a layer of clay closer to the mound followed by a brownish sandy layer with soot and some charcoal. Hopefully the latter will prove to be interesting which we will see during next week.
