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!

Wet weather gear
Alex,
Thanks for the name of Berghaus. Where I am in Florida it is pretty much Columbia Sportswear which is not sturdy enough for digging in and protecting from rain. Columbia is great for keeping the sun off and lightweight to breathe in our warm, humid air but no fun when the wind begins to blow and the rain is sideways like at Vindoloanda.

What is the company name for the rain gear that everyone seems to have on hand for those biblical events that happen at Vindolanda every week during the summer? I can't for the life of me come up with the name. Thanks for the help.

Granary Excavation continuing...
Great pictures, Kate. Thanks for sharing. The last picture is especially impressive showing some really well done Roman building and road construction.
