Our enthusiasm was rewarded with two nails and a coin before lunch and another coin afterwards, along with a plethora of pottery sherds. Both coins are from the imperial period, one probably of Hadrianic date. My trench-mate Dillon and I were ecstatic, having each found one, and the workday sped along with great cheer.

We also found quite a bit of animal bones in the trench, probably from goats, which I really get a kick out of!
A great day in the trench was capped by a great win by the Italian national team in their Euro Cup match- bravissimo!
