I'm about to head off to Vindolanda for the 5th period. I'll be taking my camera along, so hopefully I'll find time to post some photos here for you all.

Some pictures from the end of the first day. A tiny spit of rain in the air but it was quickly blown away by the high winds.

I'm not actually digging in that area myself, so if you want to see anything specific you'll have to let me know where you want to see and try and describe the area! Otherwise I'll be sticking to general area views of places that look like they've been digging in.

No photos for today I'm afraid but I'll try and get some tomorrow for you all.

A few more photos of the south-eastern corner for you all, including one of the spoil heap because why not? It's probably a gargantuan beast to some of you by now.

Some more photos for you all, including one taken from the top of Barcombe over the weekend. I'm afraid I've no idea what's going on in there as like I said, I'm digging up near the excavator's hut. However one person digging there has just come into my room and said there are no post-holes in the robber trench. Very few huge stones in there but constant mattocking due to smaller stones.
