Funding boost to record Vindolanda's Roman past

Northumberland is home to some historical treasures, and there are few more remarkable than Vindolanda. The Roman fort is still an important site for excavation today, and thanks to this work we are able to learn more and more about Vindolanda‘s past. The Vindolanda Trust has recently received the brilliant news that it is to receive £83,000 in funding by the Arts Council England for its Digitising Vindolanda’s Wooden Collection project. This funding has been awarded as part of the Arts Council’s £200,000 investment in North East museums and libraries. Vindolanda will be able to record and catalogue its Roman wooden collection thanks to this funding. Great news for one of our region’s most important historical sites.
