Week 6's team. Wow there were a lot of us, and thanks too to Malise for all the hard work in washing, marking and sorting out our small pottery mountain!

Week 7. I promise that Tony (far right) does have normalish legs and didn't develop some horrendous 'turn ya legs green' disease on site! Although digging in shorts in temps of 7-10 degrees shows serious signs of being a frustrated boy scout leader to me :P Sorry Tony.

Week 8. After having the rip taken out of me all week for my northern ways, the team outfits prove that if you work in the north for long enough, you WILL end up following suit! Flat caps for now....... whippets, pigeons, dressed sticks and ferrets by next year. :P
Oh yes, and because Vindolanda is a family show, Tony's knees have been pixelated under the normal rules of censorship! ;)
Thank you all for your hard work and special thanks to Marcel who's superb taste in various reds meant the afternoon sessions seemed to fly. A votre sante!

Week 9. Can nine weeks really have passed already? :o Anyway, thanks to the week 9 team and, as you can see on the pic, we all managed to be wearing Vindolanda T shirts of one sort or another for the photo, which has to be some sort of record!

Week 10
A very cheerful looking team despite close to 5inches of water falling from the skies and wrecking all but 2 days of digging. Your undampened enthusiasm was an inspiration folks, and quite how Linda stayed dry in a tent through that lot is surely set to become of of the great mysteries in life. Thank you all and I promise the weather isn't usually that awful in June

Oh no! I have very fond memories of Tony's knees, and would like to see them again. Do you think you are maybe interpreting the guidelines rather too strictly?? What do others think?

I think that knee-showing has to be seen as showing historical accuracy - if it was good enough for the REAL Romans then it should be good enough for us! :P

Week 11.

Well we should all look remarkably clean on this one considering we had a shower every 30seconds of the day. As the lightning bounced of Barcombe on Friday I began to wonder if excavating those temple-tombs last year had offended the gods!
