Well it's been a busy week installing work and taking work to a local commercial gallery. I haven't had much time to visit the field but look who came to join me when I was drying some of my last finds. A beautiful peacock butterfly landed long enough for me to take this snapshot. I am still washing and examining more intriguing fragments and doing a bit of research at the same time. I found an interesting article which discusses why pottery shards were used on arable land. It seems it was a common practice to improve the soil. My query is where does all the pottery come from and why is it so diverse? More research needed I think. Another problem I am facing is I am not sure if the land is common land or who the owner is. I have contacted two possibilities at the moment but not having much joy. I am a bit addicted to collecting the fragments now so don't want to any problems using them for my work. To anyone who may be reading this I hope you have a lovely weekend and I will catch up with you next week.
