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!

Cottage rentals in July
Have you heard about the cottage Vindolanda own? It's on the vindolanda.com website under the 'plan your visit' section. Looks nice, and it is on the doorstep. Not actually been myself yet but considering it for next year. A reasonable price too (less than 400 per week) and sleeps 3.

That makes a lot of sense and sounds like a great potential experience for diggers over the next few years.

I got the chance to 'play' with a total station with the guys from NMGM a couple of weeks ago and loved it, so relish the prospect of being able to learn and develop new skills.

Thanks for the explanations Andy.

September visit
Many thanks for the photos - looks good.

We never made it for our end-of-summer visit this year, might try in October half term

Wow you must have too much time on your hands! Although I confess I was impressed.

Fancy writing some schemes of work for me for teaching whole class recorder to 7 year olds??

2013 Excavations and the new SMC
Many thanks for the info Andy, sounds fascinating and rather grand!

I was on the Vindolanda website the other day and noticed some updated information regarding applications. Roll on 1st November; is it wrong of me to want to be either off sick/on strike/still have an unemployed daughter in order to secure places??? :$
