This section describes the digitization of the Vindolanda material.

The tablet text and metadata has been entered into a database, which is searchable and browsable on this site. As part of this process, the texts of each tablet has been converted to XML, a digital format that is both suitable for web-publication and--through use of the EpiDoc DTD--compatible with other digital editions of ancient documents. To read more about the Vindolanda XML, or to download the tablet XML texts, see the page on Tablet XML (EpiDoc) files.

High-quality digital images of the tablets were produced to accompany the texts. An introduction to the digital imaging of the Vindolanda tablets is also available.
