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!

'What do you mean it's not Mount Olympus?' Chris suddenly realises that it's time for a trip to the opticians as he prostrates himself in front of a spoil heap in Northumberland rather than the home of the mighty Greek God!

Week 17.

A group from far flung places this week who came to enjoy the usual Vindolanda deluge in preference to their usual hotter sunny climes. I reckon even Bob from the costa del Blyth is used to better weather than we had this week. So extra special thanks for your perseverance everyone.

Week 16.

With the Wordsworth influence in the trench this week, I feel I should write some verse. However, as the only one I know invloves a rude tale about a woodpecker, perhaps I'd better leave it........... :P Thank you all for your hard work.

For the ventilation channel shot.

For the picture of Alex and Andy.

After drinking the the delicicious amber nectar all night it was only then that Andy mentioned to Alex that it wasn't actually cider but his 'specimen' for the doctor!

Week 15.

Well we very nearly managed to dodge the rain for the whole week, but when it came - boy did it pelt down! I reckon it will be pumps at the ready this coming Tues! Thank you all for your hard work and I hope the various trips home were ok.

Week 14.

Not quite the quality of a Henning Halck photo, but at least everyone is looking at the camera. :P Thank you very much Eric as well, I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to say goodbye and I hope you managed to sort everything out back in Scotland.
