I've got a fab set of the vicus photos on my computer that Terry & Pauline sent in. I've been remiss in getting them resized & uploaded. Will try to make sure to do that today.

For more, and higher-res, pics, check out Pauline's album here.

Attached is a little diagram showing about where the vicus trench is in relation to the rest of the site.

Thanks for the update - lets hope the weather picks off so there is a good run to the end of the season.

Great pics despite the awful weather.
