Nice find.

Archaeologists are thrilled by the discovery of 25 tablets that could reveal fascinating details of everyday life on the northern frontier of the Roman Empire.

The wooden ink documents were found on June 22 at the Roman fort of Vindolanda just south of Hadrian's Wall in Northern England. Archaeologists believe that the tablets date from between 85 and 92 A.D.

Ah, shoot I was hoping for the "Mystery Letter" that some Ancient Alien theorists believe exists between 'P' and 'Q'. Supposedly it proves the existence of aliens and their help to humans. The letter is said to allow human minds to expand to human-galactic consciousness.

Or so some Ancient Alien Theorists believe, I hear.
