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!

The 2011 Excavation Season
Someone was so aghast that I could not get a week this year that they pm'd me and suggested that someone with more than 3 weeks booked should give up a week. Nice, kind thought but it will not happen and I wouldn't want it that way.

However, perhaps from next year there could be a limit on the number of weeks that can be booked per person e.g. 2 or 3. This would free up a slot or two and if there are vacancies left after a week or two, perhaps they could be offered out to the 'old hands'. One down-side to this may be the lack of old hands to pair up with newbies to the extent that the archaeologists would like. Also, the admin of such a limit. Just a thought.

Thanks for that - just got to work out the dates that are not possible for me - wedding (not mine :o ) mid-season with travel complications!

As has happened to someone else, as mentioned in the 'Pub', I too have come back from a holiday abroad with no reliable internet access and find that there are no places left. The question is: how do I get put on the standby list should someone drop out?
