The story of the mosaic is revealed! Anthony Beeson saw the key to the puzzle when he saw a lynch pin in the mosaic. It seems that one object was the key to the discovery that the main mosaic panel was the mythical Greek story of Pelops.
Today was the story of clean, clean and clean again in preparation for the Open Day on Saturday.
How many times have you cleaned the kitchen floor with a toothbrush?
Water was an issue
Even the walls had to be cleaned straight and level
And all day a mound of soil was sifted by Mark which will eventually be used to re-cover the mosaic
Lunch was a welcome break
Tomorrow is the last day of the dig – Radio Berkshire will presenting their afternoon show live from the site between 13.00 – 16.00
Thanks to you all for your hard work which has made it all possible.
