Nobody came forward for the roll call this session but now is your chance in the late summer limelight to post & tell your fellow diggers what's going on. I'm up for a visit this week so will post photos mid week. Requests taken, anyone want a view from a particular spot?

Andy just posted a description of season in general on the Trust's blog (video blog promised to come).

Something he described as being one of the finest finds of the season was one I hadn't heard about before, a "nail cleaning strap end with Christian iconography". Were there some pictures or additional descriptions of this that I missed? Sounds pretty interesting, especially if it was found in association with the possible apse & building in the SE corner of the trench.

There's a post today on the Trust's blog with a picture and description of this fascinating find. It must have made an excavator's day when they found it! One of those finds that really seems to bring to life the people living at the site 1500 years ago.
