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!

Sometime after the timber levels had been abandoned / demolished we picked up evidence of a major defensive system. This included a gateway, with very fine masonry including a guard chamber and both door pivot holes. The cobbled road running through the gate was also nicely preserved, although it had a frustrating lack of trapped material on it to help date it, and had been resurfaced at least once. There were also fine stone built drains running on either side of the road and also through its centre. (water problems up there perhaps?!?).
