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!

Hi Duncan,

Sorry it has taken a while to get back to you on this one. Our plans were to conduct a full excavation should we have found anything on the proposed site. The land is not protected, so we would not have reuired an SMC for the work, and The Vindolanbda Trust is the landowner. However, the Trust would have had to modify its plans for the study center to avoid anything archaeological in that area had we found something. Sadly, nothing there, although to be honest, we didnt expect anything. Just one of the various hoops you have to jump through these days.

More fun will be the full excavation report for the past two years of work, which should be out by the beginning of June.
