Welcome to the 2016 Vindolanda Field School blog! Everyone is here, safe and sound, and getting over various levels of jet lag. You’ll meet everyone personally over the next few days, but in the meanwhile we want to share the first group picture with, of course, the Western flag! You might also notice the sun is shining bright. We’re hoping our first few days of sun and warmth are a sign of things to come for the next 5 weeks. Thanks to everyone for following again and for those who are just joining us for the first time. This is going to be a fabulous season!
