Welcome to the 2015 Vindolanda Field School

The UWO Vindolanda Field School has officially begun for its fourth season! As a field school alumnus from 2013, and an avid follower of this blog, I am thrilled to mark this momentous occasion. All of the students arrived in Haltwhistle this afternoon and the traditional photo with the Field School’s flag has been taken. Look at all that purple! These soon to be Vindolanda excavators have all just spent the last 24 hours in the air and on the rails getting here so they are all in need of a long night’s sleep before work begins.

We have a week full of exciting museums, sites, and hikes ahead so stay posted to meet our 2015 Field School members and hear what they have to say about the marvelous sites of the Roman frontier country in Northern England.

Thanks for joining us for another fantastic season and we hope to see you all here on the blog soon.

  1. I’m glad everyone arrived. I’m looking forward to reading about the season! But why aren’t Beth and Alex wearing purple?

  2. Great to see that everyone has arrived safely (and some familiar Caesarians!) — can’t wait to see what the season holds. Best wishes for a fantastic field school. 🙂
