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!

The 2011 Excavation Season
May I just express my compliments on the excellent concise Friends Report I received last week.

I was especially excited by the 'then and now' images - inordinately so perhaps, there were even shadows!!!

More seriously it helps put things into perspective about just how organised the Romans were when out on miltary campaigns.

For those people able to view Channel 4 in the UK there is a documentary currently showing on Thursday evenings at 9 following a group of 6 builders building a Roman villa using only Roman tools or equivalent at Wroxeter in Shropshire. Once you have stopped shouting at the archaeologist who is running it all and excaliming in disgust that there would have been far more than 6 people involved it is quite informative.

Enjoy!
