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!

Human remains found - murder victim
Just because they are old, should we really be digging up bodies if they are not in the way? I thought that nowadays that the only reason for excavating bodies was if they were going to be disturbed e.g. by house building or new roads.

Would you want an archaeologist to start excavating your grandparents (if they are dead that is!) or say C19 or C20 relations?
