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!

This is a view of the small edge (with a foot added for scale).

The thinking is that it is a stone from an arch. There seems to be a suggestion of a pattern on this 'inside' surface.

Assuming it is a stone from an arch, using a rough measurement of this 'inside' surface, the pictures, a pencil and a protractor, we have come up with an estimate for the inside diameter of the arch and hence width of entrance as 2.3m.

I don't know if this would fit for known entrances

(no guarantees of accuracy given!)
