Good morning, Keith. Looks like a very interesting place ... any idea what they've unearthed here?

I zoomed-out on the map to get a sense of the location. I see an area on the map just northwest of your location named Once Brewed ... thought that was amusing :)

Best regards,

Kevin

... ok, I just found one of the other photos identifying this as a Roman fortification - very cool!

Hi Kevin. This is the first time I visited this site and museum and I have to say I was impressed. The soil is quite special in that stuff doesn't rot away when it is buried and the museum is full of examples of leather shoes, wooden writing pads, woollen clothing etc. all around 2000 years old!

Once Brewed consists of a farm house and the Youth Hostel. A hundred yards down the road is Twice Brewed - a pub!

Thanks for the words.

Hey Keith I have a picture of them building this !

These places have always fascinated me, since I was a kid (just yesterday in fact).

Nice one mate.

Thanks Kevin. I am a bit disillusioned with the "show us yours" forum as people tend to upload their photos and not look at the others (Guilty! m'lord).

What a great dig! They have done so much since I went there the first year they had it opened up.

Hi JB. If you zoom in the map on the right of the photo you will see the extent of the new excavations. Thanks for calling in.
