I visited the community excavation at Ravenglass this week, the fort is in on the edge of the west Lake District and sits on the edge of the estuary. The Vicus excavation lies on the landward side of the fort.
A large set of foundation stones appearing with a possible passageway lower right
Higher up the slope, an area of burning and industrial use?
A view of the excavation with the roman bathhouse in the background, the fort is behind the trees top left of the photo
A quern stone or door pivot hole? Discussions on site still ongoing I was told.
Carbonised planks appearing
The planks are under the upper recording frames, in the same trench a possible collapsed wall (centre) and a late or post roman track? (Lower right)
A guided tour within the fort now free of the forestry plantation. The landscape archaeologist is standing on the site of the north gate with fort ditch to the right
Thanks for posting Pete, interesting to see other excavations in progress. That's an impressive height of stonework (bath-house) remaining above ground, good to see a site where stone robbers didn't decimate it.
Is this lottery funded? Are the excavator volunteers having to pay?
