Andy was in the trenches this afternoon pumping them out so hopefully the weather will behave? Never seen the ground in summer so waterlogged.

A dry day on site Andy and Justin's pumping has worked. All areas seem to be coming along well, defining the edges of a large roman ditch in the north field and plenty of areas providing interest in the vicus. Photos lodged with Harry, watch this space.

Rain all night and a misty morning which turned to rain, managed a mornings digging (sliding) then retired for a long lunch and a lecture on leather shoes by Beth.
Lodging photos with Harry, glad they are coming in useful.

De turfing is moving the trench west so you may get an answer in the coming weeks, alas I will be long gone.

These feeds really need a "like" button. Sunny we'll get the trust to sent you incomplete tablets for translation but surely they should be eating gellato as Italians?

Got enough time this morning to shovel out mud and bail before the rain hit again, just missed being hit by lighting in the Twicy car park! Never been so lose to a bolt of lightning. Had a lecture by.Barbara this morning and Anthony gave a talk on the tablets this afternoon, rained off but the oppitunity to hear two experts talk was a treat. Photos to follow. Rain on a biblical level on site. They should have never lifted up that slab of stone!

A glorious day today, some light drizzle early on then a bright dry day to finish the week, after bailing we hit the top of a nice double ditch. Satisfying finish to the week. Fast wrk by Andy and staff saved the museum from some nasty flood water.
Snowglobe signing off, no more digging this year.
