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!

I tend to agree with Sue's statement.
The more the word is passed around about the opportunity to dig at this wonderful site, through media and word of mouth, the more difficult it will become for everyone to get future slots.
This is the nature of the beast, money is needed to develop so media is used to promote.
I am happy with the system, I was perfectly willing to smile and accept if I missed out on the only 2 week period available to me this year.
As I will again next year.
Change the booking times? There will always be someone disadvantaged, I think it is up to each person to organise themselves for that time whether it is a proxy booker or you are available youself.
I also agree that all diggers should be restricted to 2 weeks each and free up a few slots, after all, if you manage to get one 2 week slot then you have been a part of that seasons dig.
The systems not broken, so lets not change it for something that could be far worse.
Besides, I am sure Andy has more important details to worry about than redesigning a booking system.

The only glitch I experienced was the email link, did not have confirmation until I rang Fiona this morning.But now I have my confirmation for Period 4 and am a happy lad. Hovering over a laptop has paid off.
