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!

Dear all

Congratulations Harry and Sam on the birth of little Ruby -

What's been happening on the dig this last week (15 April) Jim and I shared our bit with Paula - another serial digger - from Minnesota - Paula hope you got home ok. We carried on finding part of a wooden key right at the bottom of your bit in amongst the clay and water - we said we would find something else at the end!!

As you know, the Friends Annual Meeting is Saturday evening 30 June 2007, and you will be aware that Robin is retiring - it would be nice if as many diggers as possible were able to attend to give him a good send off! Personally, I can't see Robin every really retiring as the thought of finding anything with inscriptions or writing tablets would see him running to the site. His enthusiasm and passion has truly been the foundation for what is a lifetime's work.

Seriously, pass the word onto all diggers - try and get to V for 30 June 2007 and make it a special celebration for Robin, Pat, Andy, Barbara, Justin, the Board and all the staff who work hard to make V a good day out and encouraging visitors to return.

We're back 26 May, June and August - completely mad, of course. It gets really annoying, our jobs just keeps getting in the way.

Love to all - Carpe Diem - Dig Dig Dig!

Welcome to wedigvindolanda.com!
Hello all

Just finished a dig with Andy 8 - 12th April. The weather was great for the time of year, (always bring your sunblock, I have burnt ears).

Finds were interesting and we dug through enough boulder clay to build a new motorway!

A good start for the new season.

Nice to see some new volunteers and a few veterans.

Good luck and happy hunting

Jim & Dilys
