The second episode of the 2008 series of Time Team has just aired. This week's excavation was on a Roman Fort site at Binchester in County Durham in northern England.
This one didn't quite goes as the archaeologists expected. They had gone there to investgation the vicus on either side of this fort, instead they found a series of mausolea and evidence of an earlier, previously unknown larger fort underneath the known site.
Splendid splendid stuff!
