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!

2011 excavation report...
Yes it was great to hear of Vindolanda's many well-deserved accolades in 2011. As volunteers we see a tiny bit of the work that goes on to keep Vindolanda up-and-running when we're there for a week or two and it is quite easy to forget what is going on behind the scenes. Glad to hear the Director is on the mend - 2011 must have been the year for freak burning/scalding accidents then! Good to hear that Newcastle's Burns Unit was just as efficient as my sojourn in Whiston back in June...

Season's Greetings to one and all, roll on 2012!! B)

From the archive
I'll happily take photos for weeks 1 and 2 and upload them when I get home, but my camera is a pretty old digital without any fancy features or nice lenses. Takes okay pics though.

Best wishes to everyone - have a happy Saturnalia!
