Today's digging was rather muggy, and the soil was quite soggy from the torrents of rain that plagued the land over the weekend. Quite a few interesting finds today, although the robbers trench that has been uncovered in the middle of the excavation leads to what I imagine is a rather large amount of hair=pulling amongst our brave supervisors. We also had a rather large plane fly fairly low to the site today (much to my delight.... see pictures below)
Here are some of the most recent (Same day fresh) photos of the excavation as well as Eddie, the resident warden at Hedley and true Scot, standing on his head over the Crag Lough on Hadrian's Wall, because why the hell not:
As charlie mentioned, really strange weather day today but the good news was no interuptions so a full day of digging.
Maybe a good omen for the week.
We also celebrated Justin's birthday today with cake all round during the afternoon break.

End of day 6 for group 4.
Trench is starting to show some good features on the Eastern rampart end, ongoing digging around the building and rampart in the first few photos.
Middle section in the following couple shows the robber trench progressing. No features but Sunny had a couple of good finds at the end of the day. An arrow head was also a good find in this region and the finder was pretty happy after the previous weeks frustration in this region.
Final few photos show the Western rock features. No firm decision on interpretation but it continues to provide some good finds.
