Vindolanda lies just south of Hadrian’s Wall on the Stanegate — the earlier Roman Road running east-west across northern Britain. The site includes ongoing archaeological excavations which have uncovered numerous Roman artefacts.
The most celebrated of these — the renowned Vindolanda Tablets — are military as well as personal ‘letters’ to and from residents of the Roman fort, and some of the oldest handwritten documents ever found in Britain. They are widely regarded as one of the most important archaeological treasures ever unearthed — making Vindolanda one of the ‘must see’ sites on Hadrian’s Wall.
The walk from the car-park to the museum and back is over a kilometre, but our drivers can get you closer to the museum, if necessary.
