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!

Soil Samples: Some of the soil is sieved, some not, then it's washed in a bucket, (about four times so that all the floaters, float, hi-tech stuff!)
The water is poured through a sieve to collect the floaters off the top. The bits are dried then bagged & labled. What is found in the soil samples? small bones, seeds etc......
