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!

The earliest features to emerge in our trenches this summer was a series of oak posts, with a small section of oak boarded wall and a tiny piece of intact flooring. Given that they was a good 30 odd cms beneath everything else, along with their style, they are almost certainly of Vindolanda period IV or V in date i.e. c.105-c.130. Unfortunately it was well out of our remit to investigate further by stripping away later levels and there is no way of knowing exactly what they belonged to from such limited evidence. The important thing is that it clearly demonstrated that there is much pre-Hadrianic material still lying, well preserved, beneath our current trench. Future research will undoubtedly shine more light on things and it all looks very promising!
