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!

North field bones
As usual, the annual Friends report was interesting winter reading, giving us an overview of the 2012 season and some additional tidbits (that were news to me at least), such as the inscription to the Tungrian water goddess found in the vicus.

However, what really caught my eye in the report was the description of five human long bones from the North Field trench. I don't remember these being mentioned while I was digging there in the penultimate week, makes me wonder if some of the big bones I found turned out not to be bovine - I recovered several ribs in amongst the muck at the bottom. I'll be waiting with baited breath to see if something becomes of the DNA analysis.

Vindolanda blog
This is great, thanks for going to the trouble of making the video and posting Andy.

It would be fantastic to have an occasional video as major features (ie: walls, ditches etc, not small finds B) ) get uncovered during the digging season.

How the site changes
Thanks for posting, interesting to see the site in a different season.

(also, an "edit" button appears at the bottom left corner of all your own posts, so you can correct yourself as much as you like...)
