18 April - Week 3 has started well with good weather, warm with occasional sightings of midges. Finishing touches have been ongoing during the day to the museum as it was made ready for the Duchess of Northumberland's visit tomorrow to officially open the Hedley building and museum as well as the Carvoran museum. Beth and Alex were visiting the site today and Beth will be here for a few more days.
Photos to follow of digging today.
Photos (and captions) from Terry & Pauline from Week 3, Day 1:
Photo taken after lunch when the team in the foreground, shown digging the Centurion's Quarters, get back to work against a backdrop of other diggers.
Looking north at clearing up time. Showing progress from week one in barrack area in Stone fort.
Looking south, a close up of progress in digging the Centurion's Quarters by the end of the day. Hoping to come across a wall coming from the west into the top third of the area as we dig down at some time during the week.
Another shot showing more detail of the road in the area described in previous photos. You can see how much of the road - right of the photo - has been taken out by now.
Area next door previous photos, looking north at the end of the day.
