The following photographs were taken while the Time Team were excavating the Wemyss Caves.
The images that follow give a flavour of the day, they record some of the activities on the day. Pictures here are exclusive to this web site.
Work stops at the shore dig to discuss and debate and share findings.
Some of the findings from the shore dig.
Above and below: A couple of shots looking at what has been
revealed during this dig on the shore.
An upright stone can be seen in this shot, that caused some interest.
Some rocks just lend themselves to a natural hammock shape.
Again a time to relax and read your favourite book in idealic
surroundings and great weather.
Above and Below: Well there is only one way in to the Sloping Cave.
Above and below: Filming gets underway in the Sloping Cave.
I never knew you could get so many people in one small cave plus equipment.

to see what was happening. It was encouraging to see so many people
on the shore, like in the old days.

It certainly got a lot of attention from the public.
and from the experts as well...
A very strange serpent like creature head. I believe the head is original
and was found in 1865. For the full story about this item you will, like me have
to wait to see the finished programme. Unfortunately when the finished programme was broadcast there was no mention of this item.
If you know more then get in touch. Thanks.
