This week, we had a fantastic time on our school trip. Although our Romans topic was a focus for the Spring term, this was the earliest available date to visit and we still found out a lot of new information. As well as exploring the sites and looking at the different exhibits, we also watched a 3D film called ‘The Edge of Empire’ which really brought to life what Vindolanda must have been like nearly 2,000 years ago.
At the site itself, a local archaeologist showed us some artifacts and told us about their importance. We also saw a real-life archaeological dig and got to climb up a replica Roman fort.
