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!

It's not archaeology...
Alas Nic,

That is now inthe shallow end!

Drainage!!!!
Hi Folks,

The month of June has seen some of the worst weather the country has known, and the poor trenches at Vindolanda are no exception. The volunteers and staff have endured a torrid time, with quite a few days of pot washing and other activities. We have lost two day this week to the weather, we just hope that things pick up sooner rather than later.

Most trenches have to be pumped out in the mornings, with area B flooding quickly, and area A now below the water table. Still, we knew that the water table was going to be a problem, so we are as prepared as possible. As for Saturday evening, the forcast is very unsettled, so come prepared just encase!

best,

Andy
