Many apologies for the lack of post yesterday -events conspired against me. Today we have a contribution from Brad again "Despite raining through much of the evening, the site remained in decent enough condition to continue working this morning. Peter treated the group to a tour devoted to Trench 1 that allowed everybody to take a step back and see how things are coming along.
As the morning progressed, Roman era wall stones belonging to the barrack block in Trench 1 were identified along their southern extensions. Though we were sure the structure's foundation would run further south and out of our excavation cut, it was nice to finally find Roman stone beneath the rougher hewn stone iterations of later period walls.
Rosie has continued to work on the drain running north-south and parallel to the eastern rampart of the fort. It will be very interesting to see how it progresses as it meets the north-eastern corner of the trench! Matt has identified a third potential line running at a right angle from the drainage ditch mentioned by Prof. Petts in his post on Day Nineteen.
