One mile south of Hadrian’s Wall, Vindolanda was a busy fort and military community on the edge of the Roman Empire. Now, the site is busy again, this time with archaeologists. In this episode we return to Northumberland to speak to Dr Andrew Birley and Marta Alberti who, alongside their team of archaeologists and volunteers, are constantly discovering more about the people who lived and passed through the site. They describe their findings from 2021, including more information about the other animals at Vindolanda and the post-Roman uses of the fortifications. We also get a glimpse of what we can expect from next year’s work.
