Archaeological Building Investigation and Recording

 

Date - w/c 30th July 2017

  2. Establishing not only the approximate date of construction and the original usage but recording any artefacts which exist. (This would include sketches and photographs)
  3. Taking notes of any alterations to the original building and attempt to establish the reasoning. (Again taking sketches and photographs)
