Fantastic pictures! Thank you much Pete for those.

For those interested, the water channel which is being re-excavated (Pete's picture http://z1.ifrm.com/7061/121/0/p1024097/Vindolanda_April_2012.jpg_12.jpg) was first dug by Eric Birley back in 1931. He left a great report on his finds (available here) including good pics of how it looked some 80 years ago:

Stones & dirt. The more things change, the more they stay the same!

Anybody on site at the end of this past week that can update on the progress? I'm out of town for a week but still want to try to post up the site plans & weekly progressions.
