They did an archeological survey of the site too. Having walked across their parking lot so many times I was curious but so far have not found a public posting of it.

Might reshuffle the accomodations picture a bit but to me it would probably just seem like a larger group of unruly school kids!

Justin likes to tell a story about giving his talk to a particularly rowdy school group....but he may be making parts up. :P

Good for the community overall, no doubt.

"Business Interviews: Patricia Birley MBE, Director of the Vindolanda Trust"
http://www.nebusiness.co.uk/business-ne ... -33132498/

"PATRICIA Birley is just a couple of years away from retiring as director of the Vindolanda Trust. She has worked there for 42 years – although her initial intention was to only stay a year. She explains how this happened sitting in her office above the Vindolanda Museum – a comfortable, old-fashioned sort of room which betrays its farmhouse origins."

"Family footwear find shows new side to Roman military"
http://communications.uwo.ca/western_ne ... itary.html

"By looking at someone’s shoes, you can tell a lot about the person wearing them. That old adage certainly rings true when looking at children’s shoes from ancient Rome. Just ask Elizabeth Greene, a Classics professor, who, at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America this month, presented research showing children of Roman military families wore footwear that reflected their social status."
