Garrison Life at Vindolanda
A Band of Brothers
A detailed picture of the ink writing-tablets, first identified at Roman Vindolanda just south of Hadrians Wall in 1973. Dating mostly from the years AD 90-125, these unique tablets represent the largest collection of original Roman letters ever found.
The book, by the Chairman of the Vindolanda Trust, distils all the recovered material, including many unpublished writing-tablets, and is an unparalleled insight into the spirit of day-to-day life on the north-west edge of the Empire.
