Customer Review

on 25 May 2011
The Vindolanda Trust publishes a fine site guide, but the visitor who is enthusiastic for the period will be well rewarded by purchasing a copy of Robin Birley`s 'Vindolanda: A Roman Fort on Hadrian`s Wall' (Amberley Publishing, Stroud 2009). This 187-page book comprehensively explains the complex history of the site in the light of new information at a level both the general and specialist reader will appreciate. It effectively replaces Birley`s popular book of 1977, which he freely admits has been superseded by discoveries from the site over the last four decades. Profusely illustrated, among the highlights are photos of a wig made of moss-hair, a pair of trademarked leather slippers made by a leading shoemaker of the Roman Empire, and several of those writing tablets, including one inviting the wife of the camp's commandant to a birthday party. Highly recommended.
