silchester / calleva

we had a family trip to Calleva today. It’s an old Roman town and once was as important as London. now it’s just a some falling down walls in the middle of some lovely countryside.
however, today there was an archaelogical dig in the middle of it arranged by Reading University. They have a website about it
esther even got to have a little dig in a pit of mud:
