A frontier in transition and conflict: the results of the recent

and on-going excavations at Vindolanda


Lecturer : Dr. Andrew Birley, Director of Excavations - Vindolanda Trust


Over the past five years there have continued to be remarkable discoveries at the site of Vindolanda as archaeologists have looked to identify key parts of the site and the evidence for the ever changing nature of occupation over so many centuries. The discoveries range from a new hoard of writing tablets which formed part of the archive of the first commander at Vindolanda to the recovery of complete swords, the copper-alloy hand of a god (Jupiter Dolichenus) to a pair of boxing gloves and complete set of Roman horse shoes. Each new piece of the puzzle takes us that little bit closer to understanding what it was like to live on the frontier almost 2000 years ago and it is a rich and diverse picture.

Andrew Birley is the Director of Excavations at Vindolanda. He is the son of Robin Birley and grandson of Eric Birley, who founded the department of Archaeology at Durham University and purchased Vindolanda. Andrew graduated from the University of Leicester and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the excavations.
