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!

Digging roman stuff makes you forget that not all archeology is "ancient". In recent years there has been considerable interest in aviation archeology, especially of the Second World War.

In the early morning of 24 March, 1943 a Dornier 217E crashed near Twice Brewed. It appears to have hit Steel Rig, but accounts vary as to whether it was shot down or just flying too low. All five crew were killed in the crash, and were buried at Carlisle.

Anybody have a clue as to where exactly this site is?
