Excavate


We are fortunate that Vindolanda is regarded by many, as one of the most exciting archaeological sites in Europe. The story of Vindolanda is literally unfolding before our very eyes on a daily basis as more and more artefacts are uncovered. Helping us to tell this story is a legion of volunteers, interested friends, student and amateur archaeologists alike. Being able to excavate at Vindolanda at a live site is what sets us apart and is perhaps why so many people are willing to travel across the world to come and take up the opportunity to dig here. We invite anyone with a keen interest in archaeology to apply to dig here. Is it time you started a lifelong friendship with the Vindolanda Trust?
