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 feature
Thanks Kevin, was the stone thought to be Roman/in Roman context?

North Field feature
This feature in the image has puzzled me for a long time, could be a modern attempt by a farmer to aid drainage off his field, but it seems oddly placed to maximize drainage because it doesn't follow the slope of the field. A more interesting alternative is a cut for the Stanegate. Anybody know anything about it, or have other thoughts/speculation/comments?

Session 8
Not strictly from session 8, but there's an excellent new video blog post by Andy on the wattle & daub structures that date to 105-120 AD, in the vicus outside the timber fort of that period. Well worth a look.
