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!

Week 4

Another great week with the 5m extension trench to the west really starting to show promise now. The mixed up bands of clay discovered last week have developed into drains and we also have a few mysterious dark stains in the soil which look increasingly like ditches. Ditches in area B though? surely not!!!

The infamous cobbled area has also been shown to spread even further north and east than we thought, but could one of the dark soil stains prove be a boundary ditch to its western side? Fingers crossed and watch this space.

A great many thanks to the volunteers this week, who between dodging rain storms, medical emergencies and Baltic north winds put in a tremendous shift. It has been as pleasurable as ever working with you all. Also, best wishes to Duncan from everyone digging this week. We all hope you’re ok and the back is recovering well.

Missing from this week's photo are Duncan (MIA) and Jacqui who had to dash early to support the performing arts!
