Heavy rain overnight on Wednesday left the trip to the spoil heap/swamp treacharous, so digging came to an abrupt halt until a short session after lunch. At least it gave us an opportunity to get some of the pot washed from week one!

More floor and a rather large stone, something to do with the hypocaust according to Andy. Sorry, I'm a music teacher and I don't really get all the technical stuff! Andy, can you help me out here?! :blink:

Well done everybody things are looking good. Hope nobody got frostbite? Wish we had some snow it always makes the landscape look even more picturesque.
Keep up the good work. Us JCBs are getting in training for later in the year

Mug shots,

the crew from week one, heroes all due to their working in some terrible conditions.

Edition of the one granary theory....

newsflash....

we can now confirm that the second building did indeed start out life as a granary as well. As the excavation progressed on Sunday/ Monday it became clear that it's buttress had been demolished and replaced by a normal wall, but was surviving at an earlier level, thus confirming its use as a granary in it's primary phase....

more to follow....

Beyond the granaries...

The corner of the granary is on the right and a trench showing where the wall would continue if someone hadn't nicked it.

You can see a road beyond made up of very large flagstones and rubble in the middle of the picture, presumably from a collapsed wall.

Under the rubble we have found a flagged surface that has collapsed into a hole. Maybe a well?
