And let's not forget that the popular account of the earlier work on the site is available at a reduced price in the Oxbow/David Brown summer sale.

Thank you Tony for posting these great pictures just fantastic and all the time we spent as a re-enactment group at this site in earlier times one never at all contemplated that this was all hidden beneath our feet.
I think it would not too be bold at all to say that this looks just like a Pompeii and Herculanium here in the north.

Can't really say anything else other than how fantastic!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!

Thanks for your replys everyone Big Grin Brian you could be just about right on that one. I could not believe what I was looking at the plaster on the walls may have graffitie on it and this is on a plateau that goes right up too the main wall of the fort. Imagine the height of the fort wall :woot:

Tony - anything about the plaster would be really, really interesting if you find anything out about it. I still have a few treasured fragments from West Denton excavations and it would be fascinating to do a comparison.

Given you a heads up WOW :woot: :woot: they have uncovered more. It is not a basement of a building as some eminent academics have said it was, it is another BATHHOUSE inside the fort I will let the pics do the talking Big Grin

The second plunge pool with water proof lining as if put on yesterday.

This shows it had it vaulted roof as you can see the stones at the bottom and top are at a curved angle.
