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!

The pottery is Native American spanning a period from 500-700 AD. Some of it is desorated which helps those higher up work out the actual timeline. Yes I am just another human JCB at this job, too! Shell tools are turning up that have been brought from the Gulf coast which is about six miles from the area. The shells are turned into hammers, and drinking vessels, and even awls. But others like oyster and clam are discarded food shell. The finds keep me going in the hundred degree heat on black sandy soil. Some days I think I am going to melt away! No Spanish artefacts as far south as I am on the Gulf coast of Florida.
