Wish they'd just pull up an "Agricola Was Here" plaque so the suspense could be lifted!

Before anything else, wow the oak leaf is amazing! Is it really from a sealed context & really Roman??

Great article in today's "Journal Live" seems to confirm that diggers have indeed found the spring-head! Exciting to be able to see where it all comes from and then be able to start really tracing all those wild ditches & conduits to see how they played together.

Nic, thanks so much for the play-by-play through the week. Can't believe how big & wide the trenches are this year. Hopefully it's really helping to sort out more old puzzles than it is creating new ones!

Love the shot! Let me know if you have trouble uploading more pictures, I'm happy to help if & as possible.

In the meantime, for those following the North Field dig, Beth wrote up a -terrific- review of the state of the North Field at the end of the dig there. Great stuff: http://westernclassicalstudies.wordpress.com/2012/07/28/and-the-show-goes-on/
