Extraordinary. The new cobbled floor overlaying the original granary floor is just so clear. Even -I- can't miss it!

On the southern 1/3 of the granary, I see the partition wall. But is that all demolition debris behind it? Or yet another floor?

Hi Harry,

Behind the cross wall in the western granary is another raised floor, set on to a mixed rubbled and concrete base and raise on stones. The floor is incredibly heavy, heavier than the original granary floor. Date - 5th -9th century.

Possible use through the 9th century?? That's astounding. I mean, seriously cool. I know Birdoswald lingered for maybe a hundred years after the Romans went bye-bye. But is there anything else on the Wall/Stanegate that shows life going on for possibly four centuries?

You guys just keep getting more interesting every year.
