Not digging this year but we took a quick visit to Vindolanda on Bank Holiday Monday (29th August). I took this photo of the excavations in the Vicus. A huge stone-faced rampart with beautifully revetted stones has been found. Period may be Severan or Antonine - the experts haven't decided yet. It was expected that the rampart would curve eastwards through the bath-house, but it is heading in a most determined manner for the builders' shed. The whole team is working here at the moment because (a) the barracks area is filling with water as fast as it can be baled and (b) the vicus area is higher and drier and due to be excavated next year.
