Yes, more info on the altar would be great!

(although maybe less info on the other small finds, we are asked to be careful not to go into details on those here, especially coins, so as not to encourage strangers in the night with metal detectors)

reports in the 18th Century that a still-standing temple had just been knocked down by local farmers for building stone... It was thought to be a temple to Diana.
It mentions this being "at the west end of the station", so it all fits together very nicely. There must have been quite some excitement in the trench when that came up, ice creams all round!

Nice shots. I would love to find a shoe, there's something so personal about them compared to pottery or almost any other small find. The shoe display is actually my favorite part of the new museum.
