Dampish start with occasional showers, but a light breeze only. High turnout with 26 volunteers. A brief shower after lunch and then bliss. Blue sky and nice fluffy clouds. Some of us in T- shirts by 2pm. No stoppages at all today.
All work done was to the west of Temple Street. A few nice, small finds to start the week off in style.
End of day photos to follow.

Wednesday was a bit gloomy - wall to wall grey cloud and most of us swaddled in warm clothing. Nippy breeze! No rain though. Tomorrow and Friday allegedly warm and sunny, so lots of pix will be taken. Promise! A TV team from BBC4 is visiting tomorrow, filming commencing at 0630 (not too many of us around at that hour, Andrew excepted). Then, later shots of the excavators at work. Check your Radio Times for transmission details!
Our particular detail (me, Pauline, Hanno (from Frankfurt), Tim and Georgine from Chicago) are shifting copious amounts of soil and stones from our barrack room. Very confused picture, but a floor appears to be emerging at last. Pottery mainly coming out, with a nice chunk of a mortaria found by H (from F).

Thursday warm and sunny, Friday hot and sunny. Phew! Hard slog this week for everybody, but some nice finds in our patch -a spear head, a ceramic object with a stamp, big chunks of a mortarium, a lead weight and some nice patterned black burnished ware. Nice coins were found elsewhere.
