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!

some tricky questions being raised - in my case (first time ever to a dig), it's something I've always wanted to do but, prior to retiring this year I just never managed with all the other committments that life seems to throw at you.
I do feel empathy with those people who've done this for a number of years and have been disappointed this year - but in any group if you don't attract new blood then it starts to stagnate.
Perhaps if the popularity continues to increase the administrators might consider some kind of points system with points for how long you've been committed and/or how long you've been on a waiting list - a bit like waiting for a council house :$
Anyway - looking forward to meeting you all in May
Cheers

If any body is having trouble, what browser are you using?
The application form doesn't seem to work with Firefox!
I could fill the form in but could not add it to my basket. After several frustrating attempts at filling the form out again I switched to IE and everything worked OK.
Seem to recall I had the same problem last year but of course I'd long forgotten.
Worked fine for me with Firefox (v3.6) - as a Vindolanda virgin, what happens next? Does the fact that you've submitted the form and paid mean that you have been accepted?
Cheers
