Yesterday, Year Five visited the Roman Army fort of Vindolanda. We learned about how archaeologists discover the past. Recent digs had discovered coins, shoes, pottery and writing tablets left by the Romans. We explored the ruins and discovered that the site was a Roman village and a Roman fort. The fort was surrounded by a stone wall, which held barracks, head quarters with a strong room and commanders quarters. The village contained a bath house, a butchers , workshops and a tavern.
