"How many Italians can you fit in a well?"

Ian Blair

The Walbrook site (WA006), was memorable for a number of things: foremost amongst these being decent archaeology and a fantastic good humoured team.

Coincidentally, the group included the largest contingent of Italian archaeologists I had worked with on a single site in London, and this photo was an attempt to gather them together in one place – although in truth they were rarely far apart due to a natural herding instinct!
