Some photos of this years excavations along with landscapes & snapshots of some earlier years. Mainly of Vindolanda, but some of the surrounding countryside as well.

The password is 'deluge'

Excellent choice for a password! Crazy days; to think that the very next day everyone was hard at work again. Fabulous.

Following are snowglobe's last three pics from the end of Wk 13:


"After the deluge yesterday the sun was back out again and we have a new lake at twice brewed just under Windshields! Photo looking west towards Cawfields section of Vallum."


"The north field looking east as we finished today our section at the back showing a nice section. If the weather holds next weeks diggers should have a busy week."


"Very good natured bunch who as always with Vindolanda diggers have put up with bad weather and still come up smiling. Mud has played a big part this season."

A huge thanks to you Pete for all the pics and details across so many weeks. It's really helped bring the story of 2012 to life! Hope the momentum continues -- and the rain finally gives it a rest.

Just catching up with what's been happening, heard about the weather on the news (it's only mildly damp here); glad that everyone managed to stop the museum getting flooded. Hate hate floods :ermm: hope the rain stops.
