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!

Finds of the Day
Lots to mull over in your post Andy, the most intriguing bit might be at the end though. Apparently there'll be no digging in the vicus or "Beth's area" in 2011...

I have to admit I too felt frustrated to hear about interesting finds elsewhere on site, that I didn't get to see (especially the "Tutunus mutunus" artifact :D ), but having read the above its completely understandable why it has to be done like this. The volume of material recovered every day is so large, its amazing there's time to log it all as it is.

Amazing piece. There's a good BBC news report to see it in superb detail with an expert describing it here:
