Hold a piece of history
A unique hand crafted fountain pen made from 2,000 year old oak.
Some of the wooden rafts used to support ramparts mounds uncovered during the excavation of the deeper anaerobic layers at Vindolanda are not conservable and after carefully recording these pieces they would normally be re-used as part of the backfill of the site.
Now local craftsman David Wayper has been able to create a bespoke range of Vindolanda souvenirs which are made using some of this 2,000 year old oak. All the proceeds from the sale of these items goes directly back to supporting the ongoing excavation programme.
Due to the nature of the wood used every pen is unique and colour may vary slightly depending on the size and condition of the original piece of wood. Each pen has the signature engraving of V in the pen lid.
Each pen comes in a presentation gift box.
