Great today to see Newcastle students joining SWAAG members and volunteers across the site rather than confining their efforts to Area 3. A real community effort! Our resident archaeologist Tony Liddell also did a teaching session with the students today on using photography to record the site.
Further progress was made on Area 2, exposing a further paved area and a possible gateway between that and the previously-identified main flagged area. In Area 3 a stout, well-made wall has been exposed on the western edge. Area 4, at the top of the hill past the wooded area, is being excavated to reveal a possible trackway.
The big news today was that Newcastle diggers found an intact tanged knife which Dr James Gerrard did not hesitate in indentifying as Roman.
