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!

Yeah I should point out to everyone that the picture of Matt with his arms outspread was taken on what has to be the windiest day ever at Vin. So bad that you had to put a stone in the wheelbarrow after emptying it or it literally blew away! :o Quite a shock to 2 volunteers from sunny Florida I'm sure!

Ok so I finally got 5mins to trawl through my photos of 2006. So here are a few selected images of people working in area B having mud-fuelled fun.

Also a Merry Christmas to everyone and best wishes for 2007 - hopefully I'll have the pleasure of your company again at some stage in the summer.

FANTASTIC NEWS! Congratulations to yourself and Sam, Harry. I'm thrilled for the both of you. I'm sure you will make great parents.

The secret is out now though, we now know why you look so tired on the dig. It's more to do with the nocturnal work than the shovelling eh! ;)

btw: One good test to see how much Northumbrian is in there comes with the first words. If they are 'Howay the Lads' its a sure sign of authentic Northumbrianism!

Congratulations

Justin
