Sounds like a brilliant week - thanks a bunch for the details Andy!

For folks orienting themselves, here are a couple mockups I did based on descriptions by MichaelH and Andy.

Michael's two pics of Day 1 seem to be about here (arrow shows location and direction of camera; yellow shows general area that had been uncovered):

Andy's description of the end of the week looks something like this, I believe:

Yellow is what seems to be the area uncovered; brown is the roadway (shame the flagstones are gone!); the structures are in dotted rectangles; and the drain is the dotted line at the bottom of the yellow area.

Is that about right?

Great pictures & info as always Michael. I'm loving the armchair views! And I'm not alone -- your post has blown the lid off the "quickest-to-1000-page-views" record. Thanks a bunch for these.

Astounding. That last picture especially really puts it all in perspective. The IV Gauls meant business! Thanks again for yet another round of brilliant shots & notes Michael.
