As I write – with 1 more day to go before I close the 17th season of excavations – my mind is full of what I would like to say as a season postscript. I would like to talk about the final digging day – and share some images of the end of dig party. And then I would like to talk about how we put a site the size of Silchester to bed! I am at the end of a day of dealing with portakabins, picking up rubbish, reducing the portaloos on site and gradually seeing my team disappear one by one. And tonight is not the time to share my postscript…..my eyes are closing. But, keep reading…if anyone is out there!…and and I will share our summing-up thoughts over the next few days!
