Project Description: 

This is a British Academy Major Research Project. Its principal aims are: To complete the publication of remaining unpublished ink writing-tablets from Vindolanda and Carlisle; to develop further computer-based imaging programmes for the compilation of electronic catalogues of the ink-writing-tablets and to develop new image-enhancement techniques for incised wooden stilus tablets; to use such new techniques in order to produce editions, with commentaries, of Latin texts on stilus tablets from Romano-British sites, principally Vindolanda and Carlisle; to produce a corpus of texts of Romano-British writing-tablets, to be published as Roman Inscriptions of Britain Volume IV.
