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!

Mike, brilliant idea to do some dummy runs re expansion ideas. Providing my application is accepted shall be there for 2 weeks from 16/05/11 or 23/05/11 so will confirm when known. Planned to do the walk anyway with another friend from Vindo. Will be up for any informal learning that is available. As I come from the Antipodes :P a little extra costs don't matter in the wider view to me. Re after a days work for extras, come on people, life's short! get stuck in!

Vindolanda Excavation Expansion Resourcing
Good idea Fiona, I too would have a photo or 2 to put up if I knew how, any chance of someone talking this through in simplespeak please?

Pottery ID
Pottery view charts in the hut would be excellent, a goodly size though please.

With you on that Malise, 3 choices are slightly limiting and my 4th would have been behind the scenes at the museum also. As a digger at another location where weekend and day courses + lectures are held it adds enormous value to both the site specifics and location of the dig as well as the general knowledge package of archaeology.
