Whilst most of the team were measuring in the other field, Jane and I were selected, cajoled, threatened, to use the Alidade in the farthest field. There was only one small snag, neither of us knew how to work the thing! Anyway we set it up on the plane table and tried to look busy for a while until Roger could come and sort us out.
He soon showed us where we were going wrong. Basically everything! So we had lunch and were able to use it in the afternoon.
I say we, I held the staff and Jane did all the hard work in between whimpering softly.
But the weather was great, we had a good walk over the field to start with, and it appears we may be looking at some housing platforms of Iron or even Bronze age.
