Results from some experiments in soil flotation.

The general idea is that you add water to a soil sample and anything that floats is collected. What floats tends to be charcoal, seeds and small bones.

Here you can see a larger animal bone to the right of centre, small bones in the centre and a blackened seed to the left You can see more charcoal and seeds around the edges of this shot.

In the test samples so far there has been much more charcoal and seed remains than bones - unfortunately my camera is having focusing problems so this is my only reasonable picture!

For scale, the larger bone to the right is approximately 15-18mm.

Hi Matt,

Us HJCB's became expert sievers in Week 1 and managed to find one or two interesting things under the turf in Week 2 (July 6th - 11th)!!!!

However we do have the HJCB T-shirts.

Enjoy your weeks at Vindolanda,

Kate. B)

Andy, did you ever post the pictures from my two weeks..which were from the 6th till the 17th July? I couldn't find them anywhere so I was wondering if they were up or not.
