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!

You know that charming, isolated thatch-roofed house along the Stanegate on your approach to Vindolanda?

It's known as Causeway House, and was built in 1770. It's also the only remaining house in all Northumberland still thatched in the traditional, local heather. For decades (centuries?), the original heather lay beneath a later corrugated iron roof. Its well-preserved remains proved very useful in helping create an accurate restoration. The house is now maintained by the Landmark Trust and can be rented as a holiday cottage.
