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!

Funny enough, turns out Dolichenus was at Greatchesters too. The old "Archaeologia Aelianas" list two Jupiter Dol altars found there -- both reused in later rebuilds. So there's the connection. If your fort had a "Chester," you had a Dolichenus. Issue solved. Good night!

(For what it's worth, the 1903 edition http://www.archive.org/stream/archaeologiaael20unkngoog#page/n56/mode/2up has a big write-up of the major early excavations, some really neat pics, especially of the totally walled-up west gate.)
