Well, doesn't this get the 'shovel monkey' in me all excited! Field season is near to opening here in the Colonies, but well underway back in
Blighty. This is an extraordinary site!
An archaeological dig in the heart of the City "will transform our understanding" of Roman London, experts claim. About 10,000 finds have been
discovered, including writing tablets and good luck charms. The area has been dubbed the "Pompeii of the north" due to the perfect preservation of
organic artefacts such as leather and wood. One expert said: "This is the site that we have been dreaming of for 20 years."
This amber amulet in the shape of a gladiator's helmet is particularly nice...but it's not about the goodies, right?
