All these aerial photos are copyright Aerial Close-Up Ltd.
The full size tiff files - scanned from 35mm negatives - are 18MB each and allow the examination of very small details!
If you're wondering where the ranging rods have gone...every corner of the 10 metre site grid is highlighted (by a CD under the post!) and is clearly visible on the full size images. In addition to providing an accurate scale, these points will enable the production of fully rectified, orthographic images!

The whole site, with the newly excavated south-west wing
of the villa in the foreground.

The feature emerging from the baulk at the bottom
of the photos, next to the Aerial Close-Up vehicle,
is the foundation of a roundhouse, uncovered on
the last day of the dig.

The bath house, with newly excavated areas to south, east and north.
