Barbara Birley, curator at Vindolanda, near Hexham in Northumberland, says finding a whole set of horses for a horse is “rare”.

Barbara Birley says that hoof protectors are very well preserved and the features that prevent horses from slipping can still be seen clearly.

Bulgular was found by a person of 250 volunteers who digs in the ground every year.

Birley says that as the Ancient Romans continued to exist in England for 400 to 500 years, researchers could excavate for the next 150 years and still uncover Roman treasures.

Birley said, “Basically, over the years, nine castles were built in this area. Whenever the new Romans came, they buried the remains of the last castle with clay and grass to give their properties a solid base. “

“This means that the remains are well preserved. One of the horses we find has a crack, so it may have been taken for granted that one of these four sets of horseshoes has been damaged. “

The horse shoe set, dating from 140 AD to 180 AD, will be exhibited at the Roman Army Museum near Greenhead in February 2019.
