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!

Roman Mosaics
hi there! if you cantact lawrence he does do workshops around UK especially in summer and maybe you can coincide up north. the only problem is the weight! Couldnt get mine on a plane but the best thing is the learning you do with him

Roman Mosaics
This year I attended a 2 day hands on workshop in understanding and creation of Roman Mosaics. Apart from making 2 panels (30x40 and 60x70cm) with which I was mighty pleased the opportunity to learn 1 on 1 or in a small group allows all the questions you ever wanted to ask. The tutor is a full time ancient Mosaic specialist at www.romanmosaicworkshops.com & the workshop was in Suffolk but he travels around. Recommended if you want to view mosaics with a more practised eye.

SHORT COURSES
Many thanks Helen and Rosie, have checked those out but in the end found a 10 week online course 'Explore Roman Britain' at Oxford Cont. Ed. which I have enrolled for.

SHORT COURSES
Does anyone know of any short but intense arcaheology courses available in UK between February and May? Normal websites like Pasttimes have nothing advertised yet. I am happy to go most places to do a course and would prefer Roman to early Mediaeval. Would appreciate whatever help you can give with thanks
