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!

You have a potting shed like that? Wow! When can I move in with my plants? :D

It's called 'A Museum'!

Vindolanda Excavation Expansion
Only 3 votes? Bit limiting isn't it? Perhaps 4 votes, then I could have put in 'behind the scenes in the Museum' as well, seeing as how I suggested something of that ilk to Andy earlier this year.

Conservation and seeing what goes on behind scenes is very important; preserving the object and making it fit for display and knowing what it is in the first place! :D

So if I were lucky enough to have 4, that would be my final answer.

Finds of the Day
Perhaps we could get a volunteer to look out a good find and 'bone' up on it, if you'll pardon the pun. That way there would be no extra work for Andy or Justin. I know Lesley thinks the same.........

And I think that most of us are not really interested in 'bling' - that's not why we come every year. It's sometimes a bonus but not why we volunteer. (And anyway, I never get to see the 'fancy stuff'! Just grotty old nails...... and bits of bone :P )
