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 A Late July-Early Aug
My dig buddy, Letty Steer, found the amphora late in the week of July 11-15 in area 98A. Letty left the next day but I had hoped to be able to excavate it but heavy rains the next week forced us to move to another area of the fort. It was still sitting there tempting us when I left Vindolanda on July 22. I hope to find out what, if anything, was in it when I read the field reports.

I dug and dug in the south side of that room and only uncovered dirt. I never even found a floor. I did find a Septimius Severus denarius and some clay game tokens in the fill of the room.

Thanks for the photos.
