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!

Granaries
This site just gets better and better!

I'm blown away by what's left of the western granary, it's just so beautiful. And the roadway is incredible. Thanks for posting such fab pictures.

What are the latest theories? Any word on how long these buildings were used? Whether/when they were chopped up and used as something other than granaries? Just such amazing archaeology coming out of there!

Photo Sharing Finally Made Simple!
It appears as though the service providers have fixed a long-broken system which should help make photo-sharing here much more convenient. You can now use a free Web site such as PhotoBucket or Flickr.com to store big batches of photos, and link those photos directly into your posts here at WeDigVindolanda.

Here's how it works:

1. Start a post or reply to one.
2. When you want to drop in a pic, click the "IMG" button just above the box you're typing in.
3. If you get an error message, go to Step 4, otherwise down to Step 6.
4. Click OK on the error message and look for a "?" icon that pops up at the
top of the screen.
5. Click the "?" and click "Temporarily Allow Scripted Windows", then repeat
Step 1.
6. In the little box that opens up, just enter the exact URL of the picture. (You can find the URL by going to your picture at PhotoBucket or wherever, right-clicking it, and clicking "Properties." Highlight the full Address, copy it, then paste it into the box in your post here.)

So now instead of just one pic at a time....

you can post multiples!

The Old Shed
Whooaaaaa... A dedicated boot-free zone. That's.... that's just not archaeology!
