Sorry everyone but I have packed all my gear for my flight home. I will try post an update later today/ tomorrow. The water for the test run was from the flooded pit of last years dig. Andrew wanted to expose the roundhouse to do some more exploring there in the coming weeks and what better way to move it than by the recreated aqueduct.

So, the Fourth Cohort of Diggers has left for pastures new.

Here are a few of the troops on the last day...(note the giant coats and frozen expressions)

Photos are a bit late but thought I would post them anyway as a starting point for group 5 photo progress.
These photos were taken at end of play on final day as Andrew was giving us the progress and site interpretation presentation.
Photo 3 and 4 give a later view of the photo Harry was trying to interpret.

And a picture of the "round house" in last years dig. This was one of the reasons the pit was pumped out. But of course the water was also used to trial the aquaduct after the construction was completed.
So that is all from me this year and I want to thank Team 4 for a great 2 weeks of fun and friendship.
