The sandstone relief was uncovered by two Vindolanda volunteers, Richie Milor and David Goldwater, who had been assigned to uncover a flagged floor inside a 4th century building of the ancient fort.

They quickly realized the rugged stone that lay face up amongst the larger smooth flag was something special. “I saw one of the legs of the horse first and then the pointed top of the relief,” Goldwater said.
