A hoard of 25 personal letters and lists has been discovered near Hardian's Wall after they were discarded during the 1st Century AD.

The ink documents were found several metres down in damp earth at the Roman fort of Vindolanda in Northumberland.


One of the letters was written by a man called Masclus, who is best known for a previous letter to his Commanding Officers asking for more beer, this time asking for leave from work

The ink documents were discovered several metres down in damp anaerobic earth at the Roman fort of Vindolanda in Northumberland.

The documents were uncovered during the research excavation of a small area of the site (around ten feet in length) and are likely to represent a part of an archive from a specific period.

Experts believe the tablets were written between*85-92 AD.***
