Update: Due to the outbreak of Covid-19 some of our events have been and may need to be postponed or cancelled. 2020 marks our 50th year as the Vindolanda Trust and we had many events planned for the upcoming year, many of these have been postponed until next year. If you have a Golden Ticket this will last until December 2021 now and you will be able to take advantage of our big 50th anniversary events across both sites. (Updated 17/04/2020)
