Benn Penny-Mason  couldn’t resist the temptation to send  in a photo of a cake made with a friend for their  boss at this year’s Silchester Insula  IX Excavations. Cindy van Zwieten is the  Head of Science on site, so fittingly they  constructed a ‘micromorph’ cake shaped  like a sample from a pit section for her  special day.
