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!

ARCHAEOLOGICAL EARTHWORK SURVEY RESIDENTIAL COURSE AT VINDOLANDA
This course is so good that both Justin B and Kate S have both signed up for it for the first week. The double fact of learning from a couple of real professionals in the landscape survey game and the location, the fort at Magna makes this one heck of a great weeks surveying. I am deeply jealous and am looking forward to looking at the results.

Week 15
Week 15 gang, well done folks for surviving another week infused with rain!

Week 15
Yeah guys,

We absolutely detest backfilling an area which cannot be completed due to the weather (2007 being the last time this happened), but at some stage we have to make the call. Under normal circumstances we may leave this area open until better weather the following season, but at the end of an SMC this is simply not possible. However, we are making progress in lots of other areas despite the conditions, and once again my thanks go out to the team who have been superb to keep going. Well done folks, stiff upper lip and all of that. :-)

Week 14
thankfully the 'sun' remained covered up....... for the duration of the week.
