Arising from the archaeological excavations at Branxton and Mardon, an ongoing project is the washing and cataloguing of finds, at Etal Village Hall. Apart from being a good social occasion, it is interesting to see and handle such a wide variety of artefacts, one after the other. A  flint microlith, a coin, a piece of clay (or smoking) pipe or a rim or base from an early or late glazed earthenware pot.
