This New Year message is over 1900 years old. 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. He wishes Cerialis "a fortunate and happy New Year".We share that very same ancient wish with you all again today and would like to thank you for your support in 2022. We look forward to sharing our news, activities and of course the excitement from both the Vindolanda excavations and Magna excavations with you in 2023. ... See MoreSee Less
