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!

Session 7
Rosie - definitely dog I think - I washed this find last week. From the same area - maybe also found by you - two pieces of pottery with scratched lines of cursive lettering, that joined up! Very exciting find - all archaeologists very pleased with it. The lettering did look like decoration until washed when it became more obvious that it was writing. No word on text as yet, letters missing I think.

Session 8
Just got back from Northumberland - I would think everyone's too exhausted to post after heavy work in high 20's and topping 30 deg. I can't believe it's only 3 months since I was last on site digging in snow and hail.

Andy's updates on blog pretty much say it all - especially with Justin,s twitter. I have a couple of photos but nothing as good as theirs.

Session 7
Have we any idea whether David's horse skull from the large ditch near these structures was contemporary with them?
