I enjoyed the visit yesterday, final day of period 1 here's hoping for a dry day. Period 2 diggers pack your cameras!
For those looking for the ideal gift I note in the shop you can now buy the Vindolanda toilet kit! Pre packed sponge on a stick. I bought the new look beanie hat and very warm it is too.

Back to Pauline's photos again today on the last day of session 1, Wediggers say a big thank you to you & Terry for the photos & updates. Here's the final batch
"Dull weather ended the first fortnight though diggers remained as keen as ever to uncover the archaeology"
A misty day
