Vindolanda was the village near the wall where the people and soldiers lived. The pictures above are what they think it looked like then and what it looks like now. They are digging up so many artifacts like money, shoes, pottery, jewelry. The Romans were so advanced and really have added a lot to our world that we still use today. Here are some of their findings.
I found the coins so interesting because they were dated from around the time of Jesus being on earth. They had the ruler’s pictures like Claudius and Nero on them. And the shoes- lots of straps and their feet were much smaller then.
If you ever come over, the wall and fort are in England just a few miles south of the Scottish border.
The pretty pictures above remind me of Virginia. Can’t wait to see the mountains again!
