An exciting first day for our new group of field school participants! After a morning briefing by Paul Booth in the finds tent, they headed out to the trench...
...where  in  addition to loads of lovely Roman pottery and animal bones, they also recovered this 2nd-3rd century plate brooch with enamelling still in place and with the pin sharp and catch plate intact!

They also found this 1st century Colchester brooch! A good day for finds. 
Tomorrow we press on despite the heat..
