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!

I'm digging the first week of the dig in April & the last week of the dig in August & would b happy to take photos. I think though that more than one location would be required. I understand that the digging will continue from where it left off last year & another trench will be opened near to the diggers hut. If that happens I think the whole area would be to big for one shot & give some resonable detail. There would also be the area in the north field where Beths group will be digging later in the season.
What do you think Andy, is it feasible to do this?

Said it at the time when Kevin removed the mound, but it broke my heart to see it go. By standing on the top, it was the only place I could get a phone signal & keep the ladies at home happy so they'd let me off the leed for a couple of weeks! After long research (walking around with phone in hand) I found another not so good spot, I didn't let on as I thought Andy & Kev might remove it!!
Now we're out of the fort & higher up the hill I've not trouble getting a signal.
