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!

2009 Season - lifts available
Route Planners - who needs 'em?! Anyway, still open to giving lifts as long as they are reasonably in the general direction!

2009 Season - lifts available
Interesting - I regard the 'west' route as straight up and down, simple, few changes and the northern part of the M6 is almost beautiful! Drive time is 7 hours (trying to keep to about 60mph) - distance, I think, 350 miles. What are the relevant mileage and hours going via your way?

2009 Season - lifts available
OK, I am all booked up for a series of 1 week masochism under Andy's guidance.

I travel from Portsmouth and can give lifts to/from or both. My travel dates are:

11 April return 16 April
9 May return 14 May
13 June return 18 June
11 July return 16 July
8 August return 13 August.
Note: I travel up on the Saturday and return straight after the Thursday afternoon's digging

My route is:
Cross country from Portsmouth to M3 at Winchester
A34 to M40
M40 to M42
M42 to M5
M5 to M6
M6 to Carlisle
A69 to the Twicey

I can deviate slightly to pick up/drop off. If you are interested then drop me a PM and we can sort something out.
