Vindolanda Youth Panel 2023-2024

We are looking for young adults aged between 15-18 to get involved with the development of special youth led projects exploring different aspects of ancient Roman life. Project themes could include but will be decided on by the group itself:

  • A podcast
  • A computer game or online exhibition
  • A cookbook
  • musical performance


Sessions will commence on the 17 October 2023, 5.30-7.30 at Vindolanda's Hedley Centre and will conclude with a launch night mid-February 2024. The sessions will be held on a Tuesday night fortnightly but will break over the festive period. We request a minimum commitment of 8 sessions. 

 What we offer:

  • Access to look behind the scenes and work with Vindolanda’s unique small finds collection
  • Developing skills such as project planning, time management, creative and critical thinking, communication and teamwork.
  • Diversity and disability awareness 
  • Meeting experts from the heritage and archaeology sector

What we want from you:

  • Reliability to commit to a project period of 6 month
  • Enthusiasm and energy 
  • willingness to learn and contribute 

If you are interested, please send an expression of interest which includes your name, age, and a couple of sentences as to why you want to be involved in the project to Sophie at [email protected] by September 29, 2023. We will then send you a short form to fill in.
