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!

Excellent news.

And it just goes to show that the efforts of all the valiant diggers, batting against hurricanes and monsoons, are not in vain. ;)

Good stuff. :D

Archaeology in the North Pennines
Hi All,

for anyone looking for other archaeological opportunities, you might be interested in the project run by North Pennines AONB.

It has been running for a couple of years as a pilot, but has just had its funding extended, and the excavations that it is involved in are really interesting, including Whitley Castle.

Hi Sue,

I agree, the bath house is excellent and well worth a visit. The walk from there right into Eskdale, over Muncaster Fell is also fantastic (if a little swampy).

For such an (apparently) out of the way place, Eskdale has a lot to see, including the wonderful Devoke Water and Barnscar, which is the remains of an iron age village.

Someone has posted a mini trip report and some pics here: http://quantise.blogs.com/ilove/2012/01/devoke-water.html
