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!

However, at some stage towards the end of the vicus’ lifetime another phase of building had taken place over the road. Large sandstone blocks had been positioned in roughly straight lines, with further rows of thin sandstone flags at 90 degrees to them. Unfortunately they had lain so close to the surface that Victorian / modern ploughing had essentially demolished any real surviving floor levels and there was insufficient left intact to provide any form of coherent building plan. It is very clear that structure/structures, probably timber with stone footings, had been positioned here, but what it/they were used for, and their plan, is extremely difficult to estimate.
