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!

a town called near Manchester and Liverpool in Cheshire. so gonna catch a train and a bus to get up to Vindolanda. Visited once before with my archaeology class last year and loved it, so when i heard about the volunteer scheme they were running i thought i'd put an application in and... lo and behild, i got a place. Am really looking forward to it, but of course waning to get everything together for it.

Hi, I'll be excavating for the first time ever in July and August this year at Vindolanda, hopefully it being the first of many excavations i get to take place in. However, what with being my first time and such, what will i need other than sturdy boots, warm clothing and waterproofs?

Plus, is there an easy way to get to Vindolanda from the Once Brewed Youth Hostel?

Thanks,
Vix
