Day 7 – Ten green bottles….

Today we cleaned away the top soil, the layer under the turf, in all the new trenches, there were numerous finds including some roman pottery, more iron nails, fragments of stone roof tile and glass but sadly not roman!

To add to the wine glass in room 28 -the mosaic room – we have now found the bottles, or remains of bottles that held the liquor that filled the wine glass! It looks like they either flung the empty bottles over the walls or lined them up on the wall as shooting practice!
