Another fantastic video blog posted today by Justin. Gives a nice overview (from the spoilheap) of all the first half of the season. http://vindolanda.blogspot.com/2013/06/ ... -blog.html

It looks, from Justin's description, like the late walls that I marked in blue on this latest unofficial/orientation plan are indeed from a very late building, put up after the 3rd and 4th C buildings had been demolished. Post-Roman life just all over the old fort, it seems.

Such a great story, and such a great place.

As always a great visit to see the site and such cracking weather, lots of great photos and reports this session from Pauline and Jane here's a few more from me.

Looks very fabulous, thanks for posting.

That yellowy tint to the photos? Was I right to get a hat with a brim to come next week?
