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. The Barracks
At the moment our best bet is that it is a rampart storm drain, stopping a deluge of water from reaching the road and accessing the front doors of buildings lining the intervallum road. However, that said, it only seems to continue for a few metres north of the gable end of the rampart house.....so we will have to see. Either way, there are significant voids beneath the stones. So as the saying goes,' it is all good'.

more of the same but including the intervallum roadway

The 4th century houses built over the remains of the 3rd century barracks, looking south towards the 2008 granary excavations.
