Excavation Photograph

Photograph of G.A.Garfitt and an assistant sieving outside Pin Hole in the 1920s.

Photograph taken probably in the 1920s of G.A.Garfitt and an assistant sieving deposits in front of the entrance of Pin Hole. The use of sieves during the excavation, which was directed by A.L. Armstrong, helped to recover many fragile remains of birds, fish and rodents. These remains are extremely important in helping to interpret past environments.
