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!

Butted onto the gateway, but at a marginally different angle, was a fine stone rampart front. The amount of clay behind it suggested the stone work had been a revetment for the clay embankment of the main rampart, and it was possible to trace it for at least 14m to the south of the gate. The berm in front of the rampart had also survived in good condition and was of finely laid cobbles.
