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!

'Area A'
Here is my best attempt to sketch in the via principalis. Two observations:
1. It is wider than either the current Stanegate or the treacherous Military Road that runs past Twice Brewed Inn.
2. Harry's 3 year old would have done a better job than I did.

I always feel we should say "welcome" when we see a first post!
If I am lining things up properly, it looks as if Area B has not exposed large new areas since first week of May. But those darker areas Justin is going down into look anearobically tasty indeed.

'Area A'
to make it even busier, but more accurate, add the main road from north gate to praetorium. maybe something crosshatched? And perhaps green is not a good color for indicators, it looks quite a bit like that verdant Northumbrian grass in the (few) areas not yet de-turfed!


Massive fort panorama
When you look at that vast expanse of exposed 4th/5th century stonework it is easy to forget that basically this was all covered with turf a little over a year ago. Really, that's the 2009 and part of the 2010 digging seasons!
