For anyone visiting Vindolanda this year or walking the Wall, here is a Web resource -very- worth a look: http://perlineamvalli.org.uk/. Archaeologist Mike Bishop has created, from Google Earth, a fully-detailed atlas of Roman sites along the length of the Wall. Forts, milecastles, turrets, Vallum, Stanegate, etc. But he takes it even further. If you click a site, you get access to photos taken at that site, links to national online records about the site, and a detailed bibliography of where to find more information. He's even created a "pocket" version that can be accessed from your iPhone, etc., so you can follow along while you're actually out on the trail. Whether you're just curious about what a section of the Wall trail looks like, or your interests are more scholarly, it's just a really impressive resource.

Missed out the Roman Army Museum and the fort at Magna, tut tut. Shame about that huge oversight.

Magna's there, at least on the Google Earth KMZ file I downloaded. But you're right, no Roman Army Museum -- not cool, man!
