    What a discovery Linnea. With modern technology many things are coming to light overturning previous thoughts of historical importance. Looks more and more likely that history of many archaeological sites may have to be re-written. What a job that will prove to be for many authors.
    However, I wish you a very Happy, Healthy and successful New Year. Look forward to reading more of your wonderful posts.

    • I appreciate your insightful comments, Rita. In doing my research, the archaeological findings and interpretations are as valuable, if not more so, than written historical accounts which can often be biased. The discovery that there may have been a Roman military presence in Britain before Claudius’ invasion certainly counters what most believed.

      It must be exciting for you to uncover new discoveries your archaeological adventures. Thank you for your support. Best wishes for a wonderful new year.

      Kind regards,
