Binchester 2013: Day Four

Another busy day on site. In Trench 1 all the work over the last week on the areas to the north and east of the barrack block are really coming together now. The nice cobbled surface to the north is being matched by some good surfaces on the east. In particular, the area around Hilly's Pit has cleaned up exceptionally well. Although the surfaces either side of the pit are probably of a different date, it is easy to see how these external surfaces spread round the barrack block itself. We've also seen real progress on defining and clearing the wall that runs parallel to the barrack. Earlier this week I suggested that it might just be the drainage gully that ran along the edge of the wall. However, I am now more convinced that it is indeed a structural. We are going to focus on really getting to grips with the area between this wall and the barrack itself over the next week. One particularly nice find this afternoon was a carefully placed grey-ware pot that seems to have been put in a deliberate cut that actually cut into the foundations of the new wall. In Trench 2, the latest of the sequences of deposits in the large room has been cleared and is currently being recorded- our students are starting to get to grips with the joys of single context recording. In the corridor, the lads are still going deeper and have been removing a yellow, sandy deposit- we must be close to bottoming it out. In the post-pad building, we are still clearing out the interior and coming down onto the underlying paved street front. We've now got the bases of what appear to be two slab constructed troughs or cisterns, which are intriguing. Weather is set fair for the rest of week, which means an unbroken week's work, which is pleasing. Meanwhile, if you are seeking refuge from the sun, have a look at the exhibition Binchester Exposed created by our students, which is now available online.


  1. My name is Antonio Jefferson Cole, I'm in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is a pleasure for me to write this testimony about how I got healed from genital herpes 12 hours ago. I have read so many comments from some people who have been cured of HIV by Dr. Ekpiku, but I never believed them. I was hurt and depressed, so I was very curious and wanted to try Dr. Ekpiku, so I contacted him on his email when I get in touch with him, he assured me 100% that it will heal me, I begged Him to help me. My treatment was a great success, he healed me as he promised. He sent me his medication and asked me to go for check-up after 2 weeks of taking the medication. I agree with him, I took this medication and went to the check-up after 2 month, to my greatest surprise my result was negative after treatment, I am really happy that I am healed and healthy again. I waited for four months to make sure I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test today and was still negative Herpes, so I think its time I tell someone out there with Herpes HSV-1 or HSV-2, HIV, HPV, hepatitis B, diabetes, cancer and so on, Dr. Ekpiku in the email: . Your phone number is +2348073673757, He is also on whats app. I completely understand how you can feel skeptical about it, because it happened to me, it can be expensive for you, but I'm telling you now that there is a cure for these diseases and I am a living witness firsthand.or you can email me on for any assistance.
