The two sites excavated this year are situated on the morraine ridge (left of centre)
The moraine, shown here, is abutted by two lower areas that provide pasture. It is certain that the area on the left would have been very marshy in the past. It is also possible that the area on the right of the moraine was also wetter. The sites were thus located above the wet areas, and in some instances, actually abutting these marshy zones (see images towards the end of the blog).
