Description Excavating by hand under water. A longitudinal trench 30cm deep is created by hand fanning, spoil being pulled to the excavator’s rear. The natural angle of repose—here around 45º—creates a running section which reveals the stratigraphy. The trench can be continuously advanced as required, and the hand-fanning technique can be applied vigorously or gently according to need. (Colin Martin)
