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 Michael - nice to see some photos of how Area B's progressed. At least the presence of a drain running through the gateway explains why so much water kept leaking into the slot we excavated through the ditch behind the gate!

The period 6 military annex that I mentioned before is what the gate was previously thought to relate to - the interpretation has now shifted to period 4/5 (having started at period 3). The dating evidence is still mostly circumstantial, so there might be a further twist in the tale yet - we'll have to wait for Justin's definitive answer in his end-of-season summary. Someone lend him a coin to toss....
