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!

Looking forward to that Tim.

This is probably not what you had in mind but have you seen the aerial photos taken by Adam Stanford at the end of last season.

Portfolio-Adam Stanford

or try this (I can never do a live link) ^o)

On the one showing the north-west quadrant of Vindolanda fort, on the right you can see that road (via principalis?) from the west gate and just about see the north gatehouse on the left.
That mound shows up quite well (top-centre), the “Area A” barrier fence is now to the east of the mound and will include the road (via praetoria?) from the north gate. This years work started just south of the mound, all this area should be excavated by September, so you have loads to do!

That link seems to have worked :$
