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." Link

This amber amulet in the shape of a gladiator's helmet is particularly nice...but it's not about the goodies, right?

The preserved timber means that tree ring samples will provide dendrochronological dating for Roman London, expected to be earlier than the current dating of AD 47.

Bet?

No mention of Christ.

Takers?

It didn't turn up in search...so I happily defer the topic to the first through the gate. Mods may close...
