Dig Photograph 137
1926, The Senghenydd Crate
AN ANCIENT SITE
Whilst excavating an unknown stone age site in South Wales in the summer of 1926, Sir Cyril Fox and his team discovered a large circular structure containing a number of bones. His team carefully documented this find using extensive sketches and rudimentary photographic equipment.
This image appears to be taken from the lower half of the remains. Although it appears to be taken during night-time it is more likely that this and several other photographs within the Crate were simply underexposed due the inexperience of the photographer, resulting in a misleadingly dark image.
