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!

Tick off the days to digging
Could it be.....only one week to opening day at Vindolanda excavations 2012?

Since starlets of the intellectual candlepower of the vapid Ms. Fox are seldom producing original ideas I think we need to take this seriously.

Note the stepson named Cassius.

Recall that of all the Roman sites in England Vindolanda probably has had the most film exposure in recent years.

Ponder how few sites actually have slots for volunteer excavatiors in these austere times.

IOVI STATORI (this is the personification of Jupitor who gives heart to wavering armies) IT COULD BE TRUE!

I think hairdressers, manicurists, publiciists, personal photographers could easily add up to 20 or so.

"EEEEKKK!, I've broken a nail!"

Not even the manly Caledonian charms of friend Kev will suffice to console the poor lass....

Well this might help calender sales....

Oh, for goodness sakes...

Where to go?
There is a walking festival out of Haltwhistle with some great offerings. It is on for late April and early May, but going through their past walks for ideas I found some good stuff.

Where to go?
You can certainly make plans but they will all be weather dependent so make some back up plans too. I am generally afoot, other than the Hadrian's wall bus and the generosity of fellow diggers. It is certainly a practical plan to walk a section of the Wall, and Vindo is smack in the middle of the best part.

I have never been to Durham, and am planning a side trip there. Probably the day after I finish digging as I have an extra day before my flight back to the states.

I am also intrigued by a few obscure local sites like the Battle of Heavenfield over by Hexham. Might warrant a trip over that way.
