2014 Field School Achieves (Temporary) Immortality

While we were touring the Vindolanda Museum on Tuesday we had a moment to admire the “Recent Finds” case. Lo and behold, it contains two artefacts from last year’s north field excavations. These were, of course, found by Western students and their colleagues during field school. In fact, you may remember them from last year’s blog. It’s fantastic to see what a contribution the field school is making to our knowledge about the site and to the museum collection! We’re also glad to know that the 2014 team has achieved immortality, at least for now.  Well done, team!

I can only imagine what Cohors IV is going to start uncovering when we get to work tomorrow. The mind boggles.
