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!

Week 11 pictures
What amazing timbers - looking forward to our return visit end of July/beginning of August if I'm given the go-ahead to dig by the hospital. Fingers crossed....

Week 10?
It looks more like a piece of lead roof flashing that I've got in my back yard!

Week 9
Thanks Gina

Not sure what is worse - the pain from the burns or the embarraament at being hospitalised by a cup of tea! Think it is probably the latter!

:ermm:

Week 9
It was pretty amazing, although it was John and Gina who were working on it initially and I was coopted in on my last day!

Good job I was there that week as I was only home for 6 hours last Saturday before I scalded my self with a hot cup of tea and put myself in the regional burns unit for a week with 2nd degree burns to legs and torso! Oops!

Hard to believe all the potential dangers of digging/carrying/using heavy equipment and its a mere cuppa that hospitalised me! :'(

Week 9
Here are a few pics of Anthea's pot too.

Week 9
I've been in 4 different areas this week, starting in I then on Monday, H Monday afternoon and Tuesday, 'tidying' roundhouse outside I Wednesday and Thursday (hard work, ground like concrete!) and finally working on the beautuful flagged floor in G on Friday (think I've got the rooms correct from the plan). Photos to follow.
