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!

One For The Geordie Boys!
Don't know Alex, thought it could be the Northumberland Ladies 20-20 team shirt.
Very tasteful, looks like a canary crossed with a magpie ?
Could we be seeing this next year? :'(

Area A. The barracks
Thanks Alex,
I think it's because the camera was pointing slightly down, to see more foreground, so there is more of an overlap at the top of the picture. If you match the bottom, the top will be slightly out. I tried using Office Publisher which produced a fairly acceptable panorama. Probably needs someone with a photo merge program (?). (Maybe that's what you used?)

Area A. The barracks
18th June. Looking west, the north west corner curving around to the wheelbarrows. I don’t know anything about this area so if anyone can add an edit please do.

Looking east, just inside the north-west corner of the fort, this was started about four weeks ago. The north wall is just out of sight where the yellow posts are.
