Silver Linings

After a week of digging in dry trenches with the sun overhead we have returned to Vindolanda under a proper English summer. In the vicus we learned the art of bailing out a trench, sponging it with care and hoping the puddles are not refilled just as quickly.


One way to brighten up a group of digging students’ rainy day? Present them with their very own trowels! Luckily for us we even got to use them despite the rain and things began to dry up by the afternoon.


At the end of the day, everyone seemed to have grown attached to our new tools. Thanks Beth and Alex!
