from Bob Stelton
CAS/Saxons & Mississippians
Several seasons working at the Orendorf Site salvage dig encouraged me to escort a group of my students to the Mucking Anglo-Saxon UK salvage site.
Both sites fell short on Indiana Jones and long on memories. Assigned to excavate a Saxon grave, I uncovered an empty grave and disappointment.
Joe Wheeler’s description of thermal imaging and applying the technology would have improved usage of the time available for Mucking volunteers. At a second burial, I found body stains and a shield boss.
