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!

Ravenglass fort excavation
I visited the community excavation at Ravenglass this week, the fort is in on the edge of the west Lake District and sits on the edge of the estuary. The Vicus excavation lies on the landward side of the fort.

Higher up the slope, an area of burning and industrial use?

A quern stone or door pivot hole? Discussions on site still ongoing I was told.

The planks are under the upper recording frames, in the same trench a possible collapsed wall (centre) and a late or post roman track? (Lower right)
