On this day...27th July
Back in time to 2006 and another rain-drenched photograph, this time taken up on the Roman Project. Amid the puddles work continues. We even appear to have some recording taking place by a completely headless volunteer!
It must have been a jolly wet day as Finnian seems to have found some mud on the campsite too 😊
But go forward seven years to 2016 and we can show you the coin Rob found in Trench 22. It is a silver penny of Harthacnut and as you can see it is in amazingly good condition. It is the jewel cross type with variant right facing bust. The moneyer is Thegnwine and it was minted in Exeter. It dates between 1040-42. Rob was justifiably delighted with his discovery.
