The dog days are over at a medieval site in Winchester

10th August 2020

Congratulations to our Leominster staff member Lyndsey who wins this month’s Shutterbox competition with her photo of Katrina excavating the remains of the juvenile dog. This photo has won her a £20 e-gift card.

This puppy was found buried in the upper fills of a well. The puppy skeleton will undergo faunal analysis and should provide an additional insight into the inhabitants (both human and animal) of this part of the medieval city.

Congratulations also go to Joe, Excavation Manager, who came second with his photo ‘A Damp Chloe’ It’s easy to forget just how wet it can be!  

Many thanks to all who entered.

The next deadline is 31st August.
