louisa's photo is a great example of what we are finding at several areas of the site now although it is completely underwater just now and the weather wont give us a break! Myself and a team of 3 have started de-turfing an area of the vicus (beside the butchers shop and directly across from the severan commander's residence) very early days yet but proves how much progress has been achieved - well ahead of schedule!

Well, opening up a trench in the vicus was unexpected news. But of course we all know how the vicus is drier and better drained than the fort!

You've gone and messed up Harry's nice map of excavation sites week by week now havn't you.

Vicus trench? No, no. No vicus trench here.

I like the hat, Kevin! Thanks to all for posting photos -- it's amazing to see the difference a few weeks can make. I was worried about you all from the nasty weather reports that I saw, but it looks like plenty of progess has been made in spite of the rain!
