Nice on a chilly, snow covered day to receive my Friends of Vindolanda 2009 report. It has a cover photo of Vindolanda in verdant green (although that slight haze could be clouds of midges). Much cool info. I imagine many here are Friends and have received it. If not.....head on over to www.vindolanda.com and sign on!
Amazing that a very large number of coins (albeit mostly Constantinian junk), 102 whetsones and over 200 gaming counters turned up. And that presumably is after all the questionable counters got the toss....some days when you are not finding much it is too easy to imagine that a pebble or slightly regular pottery shard was a 4th century poker chip!
