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.

ILLUSORY NIGHT-TIME

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.
