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 5

This was a week of finishing off major areas and exposing features found earlier in the year so little in the way of new features, but our cobbles now look to be spectacular in the east of the trench (if we can get at them for the water!)and the various drains, pits and ditches came up very well indeed.

It is still not obvious what the Romans were up to when they dumped about 20 waggon loads of stone into a depression in the west of our area, but they had gone to enormous trouble were they suffering from the same damp soil as the present excavators???

Things took another twist towards the religious with a certain votive find that you will all probably see in the new, lottery funded, museum displays at some point soon, which put the icing on the cake of another great week.

Anyway, another solid week and my thanks to the hard working gang of week 5, I hope to see you all again next summer including Clint Eastwood! :P .
