Thursday warm and sunny, Friday hot and sunny. Phew! Hard slog this week for everybody, but some nice finds in our patch -a spear head, a ceramic object with a stamp, big chunks of a mortarium, a lead weight and some nice patterned black burnished ware. Nice coins were found elsewhere.
Photos to follow.

Amazing pictures Sue! Thanks much for them, looks like you had a busy week! And that samian bowl is incredible, can't believe how much of it was there.

Also, here are links to Terry S & Pauline's photo libraries from Week 9.

1st (beginning of week): http://www.cig.canon-europe.com/p?p=BFYLyxyiJ2j&t=kpC
2nd (mid-day Thursday): http://www.cig.canon-europe.com/p?p=DTX3mkUnKGj&t=kpC
3rd (end of week): http://www.cig.canon-europe.com/p?p=Cddmp3cFkS5&t=kpC

EDIT: BTW, I thought Sunny & I had found a cool flagged floor. Now I know what a cool flagged floor looks like! Love the pictures of the one you worked on, Sue.

Brilliant pics Terry thanks.
I did promise to send some, but mine are nothing like as good as yours.
My patch was nos. 5 & 6 on the 3rd set of photos. Interesting but not easy to interpret, probably just foundations for the repairing of the road.
Looking forward to seeing what has happened to it in August.

Really great to be able to see progress from week 6 and 7 - thanks for all photos and wow what a great piece of Samian found by Anthea. So much of it. Can't wait to see progress first hand on my next visit.

It was pretty amazing, although it was John and Gina who were working on it initially and I was coopted in on my last day!

Good job I was there that week as I was only home for 6 hours last Saturday before I scalded my self with a hot cup of tea and put myself in the regional burns unit for a week with 2nd degree burns to legs and torso! Oops!

Hard to believe all the potential dangers of digging/carrying/using heavy equipment and its a mere cuppa that hospitalised me! :'(
