We’re back!

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!

  1. So that’s where our sun went! Wishing you guys a great season of digging from not-so-sunny-it-is-minus-seven-degrees-here!!! Armidale, Australia!

  2. Can’t believe it has been a year since I was there, looking forward to seeing all the exciting finds and hiking photos !

  3. Glad to see everyone arrived safe and sound. Really looking forward to following along this season!

    It won’t be long now before Mike Bell’s ice cream truck ascends the hill up to the cottage, bringing joy to another cohort of fine field schoolers.
