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!

Wet weather gear
I think the answer is to do what I do and a previous person does too. Wear lost of layers. Closest to the body is the Vindolanda T-shirt (of any vintage); next out a long-sleeved but thin shirt; next a sleeveless fleece, then a long-sleeved fleece. And on top a very light rain & wind-proof jacket. each of there can be removed or replaced as the weather changes.

And, as can be seen on previous year's records of Justin's teams with me there, the essential accomanying accessories are shorts that used to be green and are now mud-coloured and green wellies (with black & brown stains.)

All in the best possible taste.
