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!

1st photo. 6th June looking north west.
The fortís western rampart, most of which was dug during 2009, this is the remaining northern part.
The lower part (by the wheelbarrow) is clay. Ovens were often built into the rampart to reduce the fire risk to buildings. In the foreground is the intervallum road.

2nd photo. 10th June looking north.
The fort western wall on the left.
Sections through the rampart. Ramparts were built sloping up against the inside of the fort walls and probably had a walkway along the top, below the top of the wall.
