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 B blog, late April 2010
Just a quick note to say keep it up, as a soon-to-be-rookie digger its great to read this and get an idea of what daily digging is really like.

OK, sounds good, thanks for the advice. I'm not going to be doing the blogging on site (although there's a thought: "And now, live from the north of England..." :D ), so it'll be easy to ask the "powers that be" if there's something that seems a bit out of the ordinary, before posting anything about it.

Well, here's hoping my group will find something worthy of hush-hush treatment!

I'm only 3 weeks away from my 5 days of digging, and thinking about doing a daily blog to allow my family over the big pond (and I suppose the rest of the world, if anyone is interested...) to keep up with what I'm up to on a daily basis.

Are there any restrictions to what can be shown or described?
Are any kind of permissions needed?

A virtual walk around Pompeii
According to the BBC website the weather patterns look good for the weekend, blowing the ash North of the UK. Only issue may be that this means the ash will be in the normal flight path from the US. As long as the airports are open I'm sure they'll fly though.

A virtual walk around Pompeii
Yes, this is going to be an agonizing wait for those of us who have to fly into the UK to dig. I've got 4 weeks to wait, and I think my chances are good unless Katla, Eyjafjallajoekull's evil sister, goes off as well. If it does (and it has the last 3 times Eyjafjallajoekull did) then its hopeless... :'(
