Hadrian's Wall: Vindolanda Hadrian's Wall: Vindolanda No Data


One of the best excavated Roman sites in the country and the location of some of the most important finds about Roman life, including over 400 letter/post cards which tell about the daily life in the camp, including the famous Birthday invite which is the sole example of female handwriting from the Roman era in the world. Most of the letters are now kept at the British Museum in London, but there are still a few on display and the museum and site give a real feel for how life would have been like in Roman times.
