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!

24/6 - 28/6:
Days 1-4
This week has been an odd week - good day on Sunday - a few small finds, washed pots and went bowling on Monday as it rained, tuesday was fine - found lots of pot and bone. Today has been a bit damp and we were rained off at lunch time. Our trench is very wet and quite difficult to stand up in - we're just on top of a ditch which should have some great stuff in but if it doesn't stop raining we wont' be able to stay in there as its very slippy and we have to keep baling out the water!! We could do with snorkels! We're hoping for better weather tomorrow...

Day 5
Last day of the dig and weather has been pretty grim. We did manage to get a dig in today but finished early. Had to abandon the trench that we were in so I was digging with Chris on the vicus and David and Sophie on the first stone fort north wall! We're hoping for better weather next week!
