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!

Area A. April / May 2010
More or less spot on thus far :-)

will get some detailed photo's on the site next week.


Area A. April / May 2010
Week 1 - findings

A large roadside drain (running East/West) on the north side of the street to the HQB. The south/east and west walls of a barrack/stable or workshop with a later building constructed over it. The via praetoria, denuded of its flagstones (thus far) anf the western barrack wall on the eastern side of the road.

Good job all week 1 excavators. It is always tough getting the new trench going and the weather was mixed, although invariably cold. Still, despite this I think we have made a reasonably good start, and we should start to rapidly move on in the next couple of weeks.

more pictures anon
