Hammerstone or erratic cobble?
I found this picture on a web site belonging to somebody who helped with the 2011 dig at Rhosyfelin. She refers to "quarried rubble, flint flakes and hammerstones" which perhaps somebody less enthusiastic might have referred to as "frost-shattered scree, rhyolite fragments and erratic cobbles and boulders." But there you go. There is no stopping these enthusiastic archaeologists once they get going........ obviously as soon as they start digging they are left in no doubt as to what they are looking at.
Another thing I learned from this blog is that somebody called Alasdair Pike is trying to work out the source of the gold found at the site. Yes, I did say GOLD. So is this site a treasure trove as well as everything else? There is no end to the wonders of Rhosyfelin --- I can't wait for the TV spectacular........
