Day 8 at Plas Brynkir!

Today was an awful day for the weather! it started raining and was very murky. The students were greeted by a special visitor, Spencer Gavin Smith, a specialist in Deer Parks. Spencer took the students round the site and had a good look around to find features typical of Deer Parks that he knew of. He was here for most of the day and left at about 4:00, there was a lot to see! He pointed out various features such as terraces and ditches that were relative to controlling how the deer ran and at what speed and sought to identify the killing field. He also gave a lecture on various different sites to help the students understand the different features relevant.

After Spencer left, the students carried on in their trenches despite the weather.
