Interesting news from katesf -- the north-south ditch is early. Hadrianic at the latest. (So I'm guessing not related to what looks like the very late stone wall next to it?) Preserved organic laminate has been coming out. No word if anything else coming out. According to Vindolanda maps/overlays, it's actually bang on for being the western defensive ditch of Period II/III, around AD 100. What a year!
This info about the date of the ditch appears to be confirmed by the BB pottery coming out of the laminate level, probably Hadrianic, (Period V). The relationship of the ditch to the rampart and stone fort wall in the vicus remains to be firmly established.

I can only echo Harry - what a year! ^o)
