    Vindolanda is thought to be one of Europe’s most exciting archaeological excavations, and visitors to the site will be able to see how this important work is done, and perhaps witness a momentous discovery. This makes Vindolanda an unique experience. Each Book Excavation begins by cutting a hole in the cover of a book with a scalpel or x-acto blade. I cut my way through the pages selectively keeping fragments of images and words to create a composition using the content of the book as it emerges. In this way a sculptural relief emerges as I carve my way though the pages.

To date, excavations have yielded well-preserved artefacts such as ink tablets, shoes, combs, swords and textiles.
