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!

Tablets, tablets everywhere
We visited the British Museum during the October Half Term and it was great to see some of the Vindolanda Tablets on display IN THE FLESH rather than as photographs. Much as it is important for as many people as possible to be able to see them, it is a shame that they are not able to be kept at their place of origin.


What draws you here/draws you back?
We're coming back to Vindolanda for the 3rd year 2007, but braving the April weather this time having previously visited in July/August.
2005 was our first year - mixed weather but very excited to find anyhting never having been on a dig that wasn't on a beach or in the garden!
2006 was a mixed batch of very very hot and not so hot. Even more exited than 2005 when we found leather even if Robin did say "Oh not more leather"! Well I thought it was exciting, anyway.
Thanks to all at Vindolanda for giving the totally clueless like us a chance to dig - long may it last!
