We had a fabulous time here earlier this week. The highlights for me had to be the Vindolanda tablets. The originals are in The British Museum but there were replicas and lots of information about them. They are voted one of our top ten treasures - and I can see why. Amazing.

Most of the time we were the only people there. Fabulous.

We have been to a few roman sites now but I still think it is worthwhile to visit numerous as they all have such different things to offer. We have seen lots of reconstructions but Vindolanda was the first place we had visited with a reconstructed temple. Very interesting. Great book shop too - too good to be honest, I could have spent an awful lot of money there!
