See history come to life as an army of archaeologists and volunteers painstakingly and carefully unearth not only hidden treasures, but fascinating stories of life in Roman Britain too, that come alive through these valuable findings.

Vindolanda is thought to be one of Europe’s most exciting archaeological excavations, and visitors to the site will be able to see how this important work is done, and perhaps witness a momentous discovery. This makes Vindolanda an unique experience.

If you want to be part of this important work, Vindolanda’s excavations welcome applications from would-be archaeologists. However places are limited and demand is global, so if you don’t succeed this year, persevere. You’ll never know what you might find.
