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!

Hey Matt. Back in June, Justin talked a bit about the geophys done up and down the Stanegate. Alas, I've forgotten most of the details! But the gist was that there are anomalies for literally hundreds of meters to the west of the current Trust property. Things like cemeteries, factories, etc.

A big theme the guys seemed to be noodling this year was the idea of a truly sprawling landscape on a scale not really fathomed before. Almost like modern suburban sprawl, stretching from fort to fort. I'm kind of excited myself to hear more about this. (No pressure Andy, Justin, et al :^)

As for books, I've got the 11th edition of J. Collingwood Bruce's "The Roman Wall," printed in 1957. While many (most?) of its conclusions are dismissed now, it does give a great account of lots of obscure digs and little-known sites along the Wall, including lots on the Stanegate. Kind of fun to read anyway.
