We were welcomed by Mike Tristram, who lent us another gazebo to keep us dry; other stall holders lent us an umbrella and some pegs to stop our table cloth and membership forms from blowing away.
The squally English weather didn’t stop us having a fine afternoon. We had many visitors to our stall who were interested in all the WAS activities in Binsted local area. We answered questions about the Roman villa site in Walberton, the pottery kilns in Binsted and the Goblestubbs sites across the A27. Some of the visitors told us about their own finds, including pieces of pottery, flint tools and a polished flint axe, which they, their parents or grandparents, had found in fields nearby.
We had a delightful time meeting so many people interested in archaeology and appreciate the help from Society members and others. See you there next year!
