I just happened upon this, thought others would be interested to read it. Beth and Alex are doing updates and showing some images. The pictures are huge, but you can really see some extra detail. Nice early shot in the trench showing very clear soil colo(u)ration differences.

Check out an entry from June 11th, Alex took a superb aerial picture of the fort, vicus and north field. Gives you a really good view of the spread of the excavation, and demonstrates just how far from the fort the vicus trenches now go. It would be great to have a higher res version posted here at some point.

Seems likely that Alex & Justin were on the same plane?

The blog has an excellent video report of the flooded trench in the field. Beth and Alex showing some skills as news reporters! One part of the trench is apparently now a five foot deep pool... Commentary also gives some interesting archaeological insight.

Malise - I think you'll have to ask your questions on their blog, doesn't appear that any of the Western O crew are checking/posting here.

Another good blog entry from them today, describing organic layers in the North Field trench. Judging by Beth and other's appearance, wellies are essential there as well as in the vicus, thanks to the so-called 2012 summer...
