Playing Catch-up part4

Well I'm getting through the backlog, trying to mix them up so you don't get bored and fall asleep in your coffee.
It's still changeable weather here in Northumberland but Hadrian's Wall looks good whatever the weather.
Earlier in the year there was a dig at Birdoswald, to preserve archaeology and hopefully await advances in detection technology, only one site is given dig permission every ten years so it was quite a big thing.
It was the site of a Roman burial ground and once the dig was completed the land was ploughed, using a horse plough and sown with wildflower seeds.
I was there on Wednesday and it looks stunning, I used a slow speed to capture the movement of the flowers in the wind, with thoughts of ghostly Romans enjoying the flowers. So there are seven pictures today
