Not fair!! Great to see some familiar faces at the dig. Not fair that I can't be amongst them this year. Hope you all had a great time!

This is the Area A Team for the 25th-29th July.

Had a great week digging, weather was mostly grey with occasional drizzle, apart from the Thursday when we had the photo! We were mostly excavating in the barrack rooms or looking for the underlying (2nd fort?) wall.

Some of us also attended an evening lecture at the Roman Army Museum given by a team of archaeologists from Vietnam (with suitable translation by an English historian working with them!). This was the first time ever that this has been allowed by the Vietnamese authorities and, apart from being an interesting lecture (a project to investigate a long wall with remarkable parallels to Hadrian's wall), I felt privileged to be able to attend such an special event.

As always, the week was over far too quickly and I'm looking forward to being a volunteer again next year. :)

I was doing some reading on Roman trade with India a while back and was dumbfounded to discover that roman coins made it as far out as Vietnam! Specifically, a site called Oc Eo on the Mekong that was excavated starting in the 1940s. Although a few "romans" may have made it to the Imperial court in China, I assume that coins traveled more freely.

Not clear from the article I read if it was from mints in the empire or were Indian copies of roman originals. Some of the Indian copies were actually equvalent in execution, and a darn site better in precious metal content.
