Granary and Stores Building, Vindolanda, Hadrian's Wall

This evening, I am focusing one of the most important-and impressive- sites on the former Roman frontier which now comprises Hadrian’s Wall in northern England. The Romans occupied Britain ( effectively England) for some 370 years and for some 325 years of that period there was a military presence at Vindolanda which started as a succession of wooden forts and progressing through to stone constructions and a civilian settlement. Overall, there were at least ten successive forts on this site which for most for the period occupied a position  a few miles south of the Wall. Vindolanda today is subject to on-going archaeological investigation, a task which will last many years into the future due to the sheer size and complexity of the site.
