I've been in a bit of a whirlwind for the last few weeks. Going to take me ages to get caught up but I'll post a few pictures with some of the highlights :)
We made it to Vindolanda pretty much by accident. It is the site of an ancient Roman fort and town that is constantly being excavated mainly by supervised volunteers. They reckon it'll take 200 years to dig the site completely. Vindolanda is about half way along Hadrian's Wall and we picked the most perfect day to visit.
Steel Rigg on Hadrian's Wall. Can you see the wall stretching across the north of England to keep out the Picts?
Here's the 'tree in the gap' where they filmed Robin Hood with Morgan Freeman. Not sure what he was doing all the way up here. Must have been lost because Nottingham is south!
