More images very kindly sent to us by Paul Hodges of the 1975 archaeological dig here at Segedunum. Thanks to Paul and also Jeff Piper who uploaded his earlier on in the week. If anyone else has any old images of this site please feel free to send us them and we can post them! Here is the message we received from Paul:
"I was on the Wroxeter training excavation in '73 where I met my wife Anne. Charles Daniels ran it with his old friend and mentor Graham Webster. Charles invited some of us to excavate with him at Wallsend in the following year. One of his site supervisors Ian Caruana has now been a friend of ours for 40 years. After completing my History degree I worked as a History teacher in London for thirty years but maintain interest in all things Roman. I am a founder and life member of the Association of Roman Archaeology. In 2015 we plant to tour Roman Algeria and in 2019 hope to do yet another Wall Pilgrimage. We live in Norfolk and among other things edit the quarterly magazine of the Round Tower Churches Society. http://www.roundtowers.org.uk/ "

Thank you so much for sharing Paul - wonderful.
