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!

Week 21.

Despite the best efforts of the Northumbrian climate to disrupt our efforts, we managed to do a great deal this week. We finally found the east edge of the major roadway running NW through the vicus, which means it is now likely to be the same one that ran between the wells and water tanks and the industrial workshops found a few years ago. Not content with that, we also revealed that the road has had not one, not two, but three resurfacings meaning it must have been at least heavily used and quite possibly long lived. This week's crew were brilliant to work with, and I suppose I have to cave in to the fact that women are better multi-taskers than us men as the dig crew showed a remarkable abiltiy to dig rapidy and cleanly, but also host all sorts of good conversations at the same time. I don't reckon I can do all of that together....... Thank you all very much indeed ladies and hope to see you next year.
