You can find lots of new images of the 2009 excavation season at Binchester at the website of Professor Michael Shanks (Stanford University). This includes some great pictures of the dig and the excavation team, images from the various fieldtrips we made with the Stanford students and even some shots of the end of dig party! Plans are now underway for the new season this summer!
