We have made great progress on the east room of the cow barn and have recently excavated it down to the stone pavement floor. In the south side of the room, we found rock tumble which makes us believe that area was a trough. [Edit: we no longer believe this is a trough, we think it is turf collapse]
Now that the floors of the cow barn have been found, we are finally able to take the walls of this structure down in order to get to the Viking Age building beneath it. Yesterday the crew began the wall removal which also unfortunately involved moving some very large rocks!
