Recording and sampling

Categories: Uncategorized.

The Musgrave Crane is a scheduled ancient monument so it requires the same care as if we were taking Stone Henge apart. Volunteers have been diligent in recording, with support from Richard Lewis from Black Mountain archaeology and Ross Cook from ArchaeoDomus.

As part of the careful recording of each part and its condition, volunteers have been sampling the paint colours , revealing orange, green and also white paint.

Over the next few weeks we need to decide what colour to restore it to, the 1970’s orange or the older (1910?) green.
