Hi Harry! I took some photos as well, but won't be able to post until Tuesday. (in transit home with the camera...) It was a great week- the rain held off until the very end. Will post more as soon as I can.

Finally uploaded some photos -- here are a couple showing evidence of a roundhouse in one of the barrack rooms. (if you look very closely...) I tried to highlight the section with some very fancy (cough, sorry) illustrative lines. They had to peel back a couple different types of floor over the course of the week to get there, but it was worth it!

I was digging in the barrack where the child's skeleton was found last summer -- didn't have many exciting finds, but Pat did uncover a lovely bit of Samian and a piece of brooch. The most exciting discovery of the week for us had to do with the cobbled floor -- it was not laid out quite as expected, and I am interested to see what kind of cobble pattern emerges in the surrounding barracks over the course of the next few weeks.

Helen was digging in the room next to us -- they had several interesting finds, but I only managed to snap of photo of the huge piece of lead that she pulled out of the ground. Possibly a curse tablet? (someone please correct me if I misremember any of these details -- the jet lag has killed my brain!)
