I called by the site this afternoon, a lovely sunny day and the diggers hard at work tidying the site ready for the high level photograph session.

More of trenches 8 and 9 with the last one for those who enjoyed tea break on the sunnier days.
Justin doing his afternoon talk, I took a photo to show how close the excavation has moved toward the temple.

A few views of the site showing the consolidation of the fort, looking good. Temple Ave complete.

You didn't photoshop those sunny skies in did you?

All natural skies and freshly squeezed clouds!

Brilliant photos thanks Pete - weather looks great - can't wait to see it at end of month.

This was possibly my last trip up this season so I look forward to fellow We Diggers photos and Justin's tweets. I reduced the resolution to speed up the website but if anyone needs a higher resolution image let me know.
