Welcome to ‘Tablets’, an online edition of the Vindolanda
The tablets database provides texts, translations (English), commentaries
and new, large digital images of each tablet which can be examined
close-up through a ‘zooming viewer.’ To see an individual
tablet, type its number in the box in the menu bar on the left of
the screen and click ‘go’. To view all tablets in their
published order, click the button in the same menu. Alternatively
use Search and Browse
to explore the database or see some highlights.
The online edition
The online edition is based on volume II of the Vindolanda tablets,
which superseded volume I. However some of the content of volume
I remains important and is available on this site. For those using
the site for research, the relationship
between the published volumes and the online edition is described
in more detail.
A separate online publication, vto2.classics.ox.ac.uk, developed by Dr Henriette Roued-Cunliffe, includes the tablets published in vol. III as well as those available from this site, and offers a variety of enhanced methods of searching the whole corpus.
Other resources include introductions
and supporting materials from Volume II (and volume
I). The creation of digital
texts and images
is summarised and XML versions
of the tablets are made available. Addenda
and corrigenda to the Latin texts are provided, based on the
new digital images. Follow the links to explore these.
