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 foresee a new era for our friend Nigel!

On a similar note...

Any word on the text of the 3 partial writing tablets? Of course not expecting anything complete until the Trust publishes....but of the three can you reveal whether there was enough to discern text? And were they from one area or scatters?

Thanks Kate....although I find it unlikely that a copy of that will be found anywhere in rural Wisconsin!

Makes sense regards our German friends. They are very keen on organizing and counting things. And in the latter part of the 19th century also very keen on empires generally and roman emp specifically. Guess that is why the King of Prussia promoted himself to Kaiser in 1870. Or was it '71?

Any reason why the classification schemes for roman pottery all sound so....teutonic? Dragendorff for samian and Dressel for amphorae...

Interesting. So, are all the marked amphorae at Vindolanda of this single style or did this report just cover the "20's".

Happy new year
very true. and btw it is difficult now days with IP masking to tell just where things come from.

I am quite happy to issue a blanket Damnatio to all spammers.

They provide a little diversion. And since they are probably more cybernetic than real I think you are not being politically incorrect there.

Happy new year
And a Happy New Year to all from the Colonies. Perhaps we should wish a Happy Chinese New Year to the persistent Chinese spammers who electronically wander in from the cold on these quiet off season days....
