I was digging in the area marked '1' on the week 19 map, with my sons and we were well organised by Trudi, who also coped well with the boys' banter! We shifted tons of rubble and clay on Mon and Tues and got down onto the top of the ditch - and then the rains came...

We found pieces of amphora and the neck of a glass bottle and Trudi also found a melon bead. We had to leave the potentially much more interesting stuff untouched in the ditch, which was under about 4 feet of water by Friday!

Thanks Harry - yes, very frustrating! It was my first dig - although both of the boys have been several times before - so to get so close to a ditch on your first dig and then have to walk away was somewhat disappointing, although I appreciate that many diggers with much more experience than me may not even have got that close!

There's always next year...
