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 agree with you 100% there Alex. I don't often post either, I'm more of an observer but I felt the same thing this morning over my breakfast when I opened the paper to see the article about it. A stunning photo of the mask and the news that it's been lost to this country! It was awful!

I still always find it unfair that the places where these types of artifacts should be housed, the museums and the like, have such an awful job getting the money together to enter into the bidding wars of the open auctions! I just hope that the export ban can be put in place to give the musuem more time to get more money together and hopefully save it from going overseas.
