From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

Wow that's excellent. Keep 'em coming.
David
Will do, glad it's working

Session 3
I have been trying out some new photo image trickery which gives a full 360 view of the site, hopefully it should work in the way Google streetview does? Please feedback if you get it to work. Use your mouse (preferably the PC kind) or finger to move the image around.

A nice round up of goings on and a great discovery to round off the week Vindolanda blogspot

Session 3
Light drizzle and the odd downpour but work wasn't interrupted, the two week system means we'll not have to say goodbye to friends for another week. Andy, Justin and Kate have been key to the week so far with guidance, patience and the odd bucket emptied.
