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!

Well..... perhaps it might be made a bit more clear, then, for those obvious dumbos like me :'(

Week 9
Respectfully, I think you may find that the 'A' suffix refers to excavations within the fort area which was last year and that the 'B' suffix refers to the current excavations in the vicus/settlement in the western area. So its 4B, not 4A

However, Andy, Justin and Kate may have changed the naming pattern since last week, just to confuse us poor diggers, potsherd & bone washers and those who log in the finds in the Museum... :D

From 'A Potsherd & Bone Washer' for the last 3 weeks

I always resize mine wherever I'm sending them. It's only polite and considerate as not everybody has the space for large pix.

A friend of mine has only space for 2 pix seemingly and her mailbox siezes up completely :'(

This photo is from 15 May - taken through the Hut window where I was washing the pottery finds (and bones).
