Just a quick message to say that we extracted the first two pieces of gold jewellery today and all went well. The picture is of our team of staff and helpers around Cat II/F/15, one of the largest gold torques. This is an important piece as it has what appears to be original resin filler in the end of one hollow end. Later today we removed a second smaller half section of a torque.

Both are now in airtight containers to keep them wet as found until we're finished their analytical work.  More of the same tomorrow and on till Friday!
