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!

I was also scraping gravel back from one of the shop buildings (i think!) We found a lot of rubble in half of the building, it looked like a hole or sumthing had been filled in with rubble to level off the area. In the other half we found a possible antonine road surface.

We found a lot of pottery, glass and bones as well as 2 coins and part of a brooch, here a few pics for your viewing pleasure :D
