Our impact


We estimate that only 24% of Vindolanda has been excavated, meaning we have another 150 years of excavating to go!


Since the Vindolanda Trust opened its doors to visitors in 1970 over 5 million people have visited our two sites.


The Vindolanda Trust employs 47 local staff, one of the largest tourism employers in Tynedale.
