Vindolanda's Pottery Collection Moves House

Vindolanda Trust - Wednesday, January 22, 2014
Everyone at Vindolanda is involved in the big storage reshuffle. Today the Samian collection and much of the pottery excavated at Vindolanda in more than forty excavation seasons has been relocated to the newly renovated storage facility at Codley Gate Farm.

The work spaces are located close to the finds in order to make it easy to access parts of the Vindolanda collections for research and further work.

The curatorial team have made sure that the boxes are all numbered and their contents carefully recorded.














Barbara and Liz are hard at work keeping the record straight!

It is great to see the new work tables pressed into service as soon as they were taken out of their boxes!

The sculptured stone is also going to be housed at this facility. I think it will be a bit more tricky to relocate some of the larger pieces to their new home!
