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!

Midges! How bad are they really?
Midges are put off by brewers yeast so strong and frequent ale in the Twice Brewed normally works! Avon "skin so soft" also used by local mountain rescue teams, applied to the skin not drunk so not as much fun.

Perhaps some are worried about being burned at the stake for booking more than two weeks! But I seem to working on my own one week! Still more cake for me.

Thanks Badger I'll need those items back before my stay! I know that Vindolanda has had a profound change on me from the site itself and its great team to the volunteers I have worked with but I guess I have to accept that it doesn't owe me a place so I'm honoured to have made it back. Roll on 2012. Hope I'm in the easy to supervise group Andy?

Anyone feel like starting a roll call for 2012? Feeling guilty about getting a place this time & thinking of a suitable disguise to wear in week two! :huh:

Nah, the planes are always flying. Of course last minute changes of plans are hard on us trans Atlantic commuters. I have occasionally calculated what it would take to get me from here to the taproom of the Twicey on short notice. I think I could do it in 36 hours, but it wouldn't be pretty.

I reckon there's a reality TV show in there, "twice brewed Doctor"

Sorry to hear that, people change their plans so you never know a place may appear? Keep the faith. It's getting the flights booked that add to the complication I guess?

Scary sight seeing the weeks vanishing before my eyes in just a few minutes from the site. Had the E mail through to confirm May so hopefully seeing some regulars ? :P

Can't tell if this year the t-shirt is included in the excervation price, or do we have to buy it as an extra? can anyone help!
I think it is? Don't think anything has changed. The form still requires you to tick the size box extra payment is not added at the end.

Very smooth process, requested first two weeks in May fingers crossed!
