Eighth Legion visit Vindolanda

Over this weekend, soldiers from the Eighth Legion reenactment group will be visiting Vindolanda. The Eighth Legion may have provided the Emperor Hadrian’s military escort during his famous visit to Hadrian's Wall. These veteran legionaries all have valuable skills to demonstrate; there will be a military surveyor, a shoemaker, plus plenty of arms and equipment on display. You can also have your name written in the cursive script used on the Vindolanda Tablets, or have a coin struck for you to take home (£1).
