More from Terry S here:

To the right of the flags, the barrack wall of Stone Fort 2. This continued past the excavators and then possibly turning to the east.

Earlier barrack wall of Stone Fort 1 looking south.

West of the North gate, in the Temple area (looking north). The wet conditions never got worse than those shown and radically improved throughout the week.

Posted Image
Forms (only one sheet this time folks!) nearly completed. Supervisor Kevin hovering.

Our refugee from the vicus. He fitted in well. He's happy because he has a red tee shirt and the rest of us haven't. Team Centurion pretending to work whilst he's there.

"I think you need to press the red button Andy."
"Where is it Justin?"

Weather much improved - it got better as the week went on. The Via Decumana is probably under the diggers, not too far down.

John, at left, clearing possible robbed out foundations of a wall.

Looking north. Stone Fort 2 barrack wall still heading north, but expected to turn right about two feet further on. Week 2 should have cracked it by now.

Posted Image
No more dirty finger nails for a while! 80% of Team Centurion, at the end. Apparently, we weren't too far from a Centurion's quarters.

Oops, the original link to Terry & Pauline's Canon album didn't work. This one should!

Canon Photo Album links not playing nicely. Captured the mid-sized pics and placed them into WeDig Admin section, they should show up & behave now!
