It is part of the remarkable archive of writing tablets (thin pieces of wood written on with ink, similar to a postcard) which have been uncovered at Roman Vindolanda.The fragment is of a letter from Hostilius Flavianus to Flavius Cerialis the Commanding Officer of the IX Cohort of Batavians who were stationed at Vindolanda in about AD 97-105.
