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!

Hi Jim,
Many thanks for your kind words, and you support. One of the greatest strengths of this project and the Vindolanda Trust as a whole is the volunteer input.
The project includes; site interpretation, re-display at the Roman Army Museum and Vindolanda (with particular emphasis on the writing tablets there), and the Vindolanda study centre for the excavations/excavators, new footpaths at Vindolanda and many other things.
We will get a more detailed outline out as soon. Timetables will have to wait until the spring as nothing is fixed in stone until you get to the second stage. Basically at this stage HLF put the money for the project to one side and request a lot of things to be worked up to the 'go' level. When we progress to stage 2 there will be a large number of fantastic opportunities to get involved with many aspects of the project, so Vindolanda will be letting everyone know what these are as soon as they become available.
All the best,
