Abstract: This report on the 1968 excavations has been edited from an original unpublished report written by the director Anthea Diver. The corn drier was excavated in 1971 and planned by Bill Thomas. Between Easter and Midsummer 1968, a small excavation was carried out at SK 9425 0800, about 200m north of the river Gwash, just above the 60m contour. The site (code EMP 68 Site 3) had originally shown up as a dark soilmark after ploughing. An area of approximately 100 sq. m was stripped and a number of features were identified below about 0 .25m of ploughsoil. Further excavation on the site was not possible because the field was needed for cropping. Further evidence of the site was detected in 1971, 1Om to the south of the 1968 excavation at SK 9423 0798, when a stone-built structure was exposed by the mechanical scrapers. [Introduction]
