More time lost to rain today, which was a bit of a shame. The new volunteers are making great inroads into the final area needing cleaning up. Work also continues with the possible interval tower in the north-west corner; highly probable that the other wall of the tower will be outside our trench of course... Sue's pit continues to expand; today it produced a lovely fragment of pot with late Roman? incised graffiti!
This blog will share information about the major new field project at the Roman fort of Binchester (Co. Durham), run jointly by Durham County Council, the Dept. of Archaeology, Durham University, Vinovia.org, Texas Tech University and the Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland. It will communicate news, events, and once the field season starts a daily update of the discoveries on site. To find out more visit our website
