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!

Historical Novels
Hi,
I like the Boudicca trilogy by Manda Scott. Not only are they a good read, but I think they do at good job at showing how people in past times must have been not just like us but living a long time ago, but the fact that they lived in such different conditions would have meant that they thought differently from us and conceptualised the world very differently too. And of course it's always good to have women as the main characters for a change...

The 11th May Gang...
Hi Alex,
Great photo! Agree the front row are a strange looking lot, but I think the back row have a certain ... je ne sais quoi.. about them.
