The time has come to say goodbye. My wonderful six weeks here in Vindolanda has unfortunately come to an end. This has been an experience I will never forget! I feel remarkably privileged to have excavated at Vindolanda. This trip has changed me in many ways. Before this trip, I don’t think that I have ever stared at dirt so intently. Now I can’t wait to do it again. I’ve been bitten twice. Once by the travel bug and second by the archaeology bug. I am itching to come back next year and rekindle friendships with old friends.
