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!

5. More of a major east-west running roadway was traced making its way past the south front of the temple-tombs towards the main western gate of the Antonine fort. Flanking the south side of this roadway lay three small wells. Only one of these was stone lined, one had four large stone slabs at its head and the other had merely been cut into the natural clay. To the north side of the roadway lay a small square structure built from dressed stone. Its walls were narrow and its internal area was less than 2 sq metres. Given its location at a road side, on top of a hill, at the edge of the vicus, perhaps its most likely function was as a mausoleum
