Dr Andrew Birley, CEO of the Vindolanda Trust will explore the archaeological layers where wooden artefacts are found at Roman Vindolanda and cast a light on why these organic finds are so well preserved.

This lecture is part of the online exhibition: Digging up memories - Making connections

If you would like to take a look at our online digital exhibition before your visit you can see it here. It takes a look at what thoughts and memories are brought up by the artefacts we find. The project asked members of The Vindolanda Trust team to pick their favourite wooden object in the museum and tell us about the memories it brought back.
