As Pete said, a great batch of end-of-week pictures. Amazing what's been done in little more than a month! Pete was working in the NE corner of 4a in the plan below:
Here in his words:
"Had some rain today hence a raindrop on the lens but it's been a good week for digging. This shot shows the old Birley trenches with interesting round structures, may be pre roman?"
"Looking east at the causeway over the Severan ditch today"
"Rainy shot of the road possibly built over the Flattened Severan rampart, nice new road drain appearing on right." (standing at S end of 4b, looking south)
"Looking south along the Severan ditch an interesting stain appearing (centre)"
"My trench cut into the ditch, two hard days clearing rock and clay cap. Water is now pouring in. No finds but the diggers further down the site found pond weed & twigs so the preservation in there shows promise. Roll on Monday. Paved slabs next to the wheelbarrow seem to be rising over another boggy area?"
"Looks like the north/south road great drainage ditches on both sides." (SE corner of 4c, looking north)
"Andy showing Tony Birley the ancestral trenches dug in the 30's. Now modern pumps helping keep then dry(ish)."
