VindolandaVindolanda Roman fort and museum

Vindolanda was occupied by the Roman army from around AD 85 when the first fort was built to guard the central section of the vital east to west supply route, now known as the Stanegate. Some 40 years later when Hadrian’s Wall was built, Vindolanda became a Wall fort. Visitors can view a range of excavated remains include a bath house, barracks, officer’s residence and temple. Vindolanda is half a mile south of Old High Shield.

The museum displays a vast range of Roman artefacts including leather goods, textiles, wooden, bronze and iron objects, as well as the slivers of wood covered in spidery ink writing. The translation of these findings is providing primary evidence of everyday life in this area.
