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!

This is short notice, but if anyone is in the North Pennines areas and fancies kicking over some mole-hills, there's going to be a mole-hill survey at Whitley Castle.

Roman Paris
:ermm: Ooooh, now I want to go too!

I am lucky in that I live within easy distance of Kings X, so I can easily go over just for the day.

As well as the places suggested by Peter and the usual, and wonderful, Louvre, for lovely places to go (not all Roman), I'd suggest:

Musee de Moyen Age at Cluny, - http://www.musee-moyenage.fr/

Musee Carnavelet (in the Marais), - http://carnavalet.paris.fr/

Musee Albert Khan - http://albert-kahn.hauts-de-seine.net/

Saint Chapelle - http://www.discoverfrance.net/France/Cathedrals/Paris/Sainte-Chapelle.shtml

And this is a useful online magazine (in English) http://www.parisvoice.com/

Of course, you might find yourself sitting in pavement cafes, or on the bank of the Seine, just watching the world go by B) . It's so easy to have a lovely time in Paris, and I'm sure that you will.

Roman Paris
There's never enough time to do everything in Paris.
It'll all be there for the next time you're over anyway. Did you go over on Eurostar?
I love Eurostar :wub:

Roman Paris
Hi Peter,

thanks for the pics.

I've done some Paris Romain too. Did you get to the amphitheatre? If not, perhaps something for next time.

You can follow a walk around Roman Paris here http://www.paris.culture.fr/en/

I'm so looking forward to May for my digging to begin :D , but some reminders of lovely Paris are always welcome.

See ya

Tick off the days to digging

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

It'll be fine Tim, We always find plenty of nails at Vindolanda, so we'll be able to help her out with this ;)

Where to go?
Also, especially if the weather is good, Talkin Tarn is lovely.
You can also walk (or drive, then walk) up to Talkin Fell, which is super.

wonder why there was such huge earthworks?
Aliens. Definitely Aliens :D

I've never been to High Rochester. Is it actually possible to get there sans car?

Where to go?
Whitley Castle, which is a Roman fort about 15 mile south of haltwhistle. HUGE earthworks :D
