Trowels and tribulationsJune 23, 2010
The Whitehall Roman Villa dig is back in full swing – check out the blog to see the latest discoveries. Last week veteran diggers who’ve been finding scattered tesserae (the squares used to make up a mosaic) for years were absolutely delighted to discover a whole swathe of them still in position.
One of the veteran diggers was so excited, she forgot that sitting in front of a computer for eleven months of the year is not ideal training for spending several hours a day bending at odd angles and shifting large quantities of soil.
So, two new discoveries – archaeology and osteopathy.
