As regular excavators know the Twice Brewed Pub is officially the holder of the worst pub quiz in England and possibly everywhere else? Tonight due to a tragic accident another team failed to win and "Team Brian" forged ahead the win the star prize of a Peter and the Wolf LP (the special beer stained addition)

The "relic of Brian" is now safely installed in the diggers hut for future excavators to marvel at or possibly throw darts at! Attached photo shows its stately progression onto site.

Not the best of days weatherise yesterday but there wasn't much time lost to rain, currently its a glorious looking day out there but change may be on its way?
The search for the intervallum road continues

A day of mixed wether, sun in the morning followed by a rummage for wooly hats in the afternoon but not a moment lost to rain. The large late roman building seems to be getting larger by the day! Perhaps session 4 will find the missing wall?
The intervallum road causes much pre lunch speculation

The deturfing and search for flags continues in the morning sun

The view from the spoil heap

And finally the 360 photo link

One more day left, session 4 diggers don't forget your cameras
