Pete, if you email me a couple of the real goodies I could likely wrestle them onto the site tomorrow.
Harry has taught me in the ways of file management.

As Harry's State of Maine seems to have entered a temporary Dark Age I shall attempt to put up a few of Pete's always excellent photos: T.Wolter

This is the altar plinth mentioned last week. Something stood right outside the bath house. Perhaps a reminder to scrub behind your ears.

A road surface. Nice to have that diggers hut in the background for orientation. Swell drainage ditch to the right of the road....looks to still be in active service.

Pete and Nigel uncovered a flagged surface on Monday. They are being stymied by the brand new visitors pathway!

I am struggling a little with the orientation, but Pete says this is the causeway mentioned by Justin. Perhaps road to the right, stone flags showing where the road crosses the ditch. Is the aqueduct later or (cool if true) did it go over the causeway as well?

One more from Pete. This is the big slab at the bottom of the pit alluded to in Justin's tweet of the day. Notice the intent photographer.
Now, personally I have seen enough Indiana Jones movies to know that when you open up a mysterious pit and lift the stone lid nothing good ever comes of it!
