Apologies for the long delay since the last blog update- but great news; there is going to be a party!!
To celebrate the end of the seven seasons of excavation on the Binchester barrack block and vicus we're going to have (a much delayed) get together.
Date: Friday March 18th 2016
Location: Department of Archaeology, Durham University
We will kick off with a couple of short talks- David Mason talking about the results of the project and David Petts taking a lighter look at what we got up to and thinking about the future - followed by a get-together in the Department of Archaeology common room.
Who is invited? Everyone who has been involved in the project over the last seven years- staff, students and volunteers.
Everyone please bring some food to share! We'll provide paper plates and drinks
If you plan to come please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org to I have a rough idea of numbers
