Last week HLF gave us permission to make public our news! Yes, they’ve given us a great grant to run the project that we’ve been on and on about …. a year long plan to excavate at Castleshaw Roman Forts in Saddleworth.
Yes indeed, Friends of Castleshaw Roman Forts and HLF are now joined in happy togetherness.
And just for an introductory blog today here’s what’s been happening this weekend…… letting rip in Ella’s gorgeous garden… here is Ella looking quite happy about it all
But despite much rain…………there was a hint of the Roman Road
…with diggers Cliff and Maurice going for it….
the sad news from our illustrious leader Norman is that
standing on an actual ROMAN ROAD, no really – it is. Later I’ll bring you a fuller report of this weekend’s work from Norman.
And in the weeks ahead, when we’re doing no digging, I’ll backtrack through our blogstory taking us right up to the start of the community dig in July.
Fond farewells from Jane, your faithful bloggerina.
