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!

Brinno, no I think you are correct that looks like him.
Kate, thanks for your roundhouse panorama

16th May. Looking south. At the end of our 1st day on the great north road.
After trudging miles along the Stanegate road, imagine entering the fort through the north gatehouse and walking down this 18 metre wide road. With buildings both sides, the barracks on the right and the north gate behind you. Straight ahead of you is the front of the headquarters building, very impressive.
Scary? depending on the purpose of your visit, new recruit, prisoner or slave. Maybe just a seasoned old soldier returning to your “comfortable” barracks, looking forward to seeing your band of brothers and visiting descendants of Atrectus the brewer? :)
