Is it possible that the 2013 excavation season at Vindolanda is really right around the corner??

In preparation, here's a great YouTube slideshow posted by "wringknuckle" of a day digging, summer 2011. Short sleeves & no snow -- there's hope!

Also, in case you hadn't yet seen it, Justin's video from early March surveying & describing the site. Looks like it will be a very exciting year!

Hopefully the sun will be out for that walk to the diggers hut?

Just talking on the phone to family in Leeds, sounds like its barely above freezing, with still snow left from last week in shaded spots. Makes me wonder if the ground in the fort will be frozen on the first morning tomorrow! Can any locals give us an update?
