Hi all! We're in the usual mid-season WeDig lull. Who's on site this next couple of weeks that can snap us out of it? Let's see the hilarity, hijinx -- oh, and archaeology! -- happening in the trenches.

Not strictly from session 8, but there's an excellent new video blog post by Andy on the wattle & daub structures that date to 105-120 AD, in the vicus outside the timber fort of that period. Well worth a look.

Is it true that another writing tablet was found in the round wattle and daub hut?!

If you watch the latest video blog entry from Andy, you'll hear it straight from the horse's mouth.

Just got back from Northumberland - I would think everyone's too exhausted to post after heavy work in high 20's and topping 30 deg. I can't believe it's only 3 months since I was last on site digging in snow and hail.

Andy's updates on blog pretty much say it all - especially with Justin,s twitter. I have a couple of photos but nothing as good as theirs.
