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!

Week 11.

Well we should all look remarkably clean on this one considering we had a shower every 30seconds of the day. As the lightning bounced of Barcombe on Friday I began to wonder if excavating those temple-tombs last year had offended the gods!

Week 10
A very cheerful looking team despite close to 5inches of water falling from the skies and wrecking all but 2 days of digging. Your undampened enthusiasm was an inspiration folks, and quite how Linda stayed dry in a tent through that lot is surely set to become of of the great mysteries in life. Thank you all and I promise the weather isn't usually that awful in June

Cracking pics Bryan. You might be interested to note that your lumpy little pal (I'm not talkng about Matt here either :P ) appears to be now living in a pit in my area. As I haven't yet heard the water pump grumble, I suppose he must still be there!

Week 9. Can nine weeks really have passed already? :o Anyway, thanks to the week 9 team and, as you can see on the pic, we all managed to be wearing Vindolanda T shirts of one sort or another for the photo, which has to be some sort of record!

Week 8. After having the rip taken out of me all week for my northern ways, the team outfits prove that if you work in the north for long enough, you WILL end up following suit! Flat caps for now....... whippets, pigeons, dressed sticks and ferrets by next year. :P
Oh yes, and because Vindolanda is a family show, Tony's knees have been pixelated under the normal rules of censorship! ;)
Thank you all for your hard work and special thanks to Marcel who's superb taste in various reds meant the afternoon sessions seemed to fly. A votre sante!
