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!

Random question of the day. I read that in addition to the Whin Sill, there are columns of whinstone that can be found in the area -- like little pipes of magma that squeezed up in faults and then solidified. Did the Vindolanda whinstone come from tumbled/glacial Whin Sill boulders, or from a local "pipe"? Or is there any way really to know?

Thanks again for some really interesting stuff! Amazing what can be learned from the very rocks under our feet.
