1980 and the excavations at Six Dials, in Southampton, England. This was one of the Saxon Wells excavated there; no problems with health and safety back then!
Six Dials was one of the larger areas excavated of the Middle Saxon port of Hamwic, now the St Mary’s district of the city. There were metaled streets , and the rubbish pits showed the town to have more than it’s share of fine craftsmen, working metals, bone, and stone for export.
Scanned and enlarged from a colour slide ( I think on Boots own 100ASA colour slide film). Camera would have been my new Ricoh XR10, I reckon.
