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!

Thanks much for this, David! Wow, so much happening everywhere.

Question about the sand/silt buildup (there was a similar area nearby in '09 too, right?). What could have caused so much to build up there in a matter of, at best, a few decades? I could understand a few inches of grime and whatnot in a derelict old yard space. But that looks like well over a foot! If it was a major flood event, I could maybe see it. But even then, you'd think there would be rubbish strewn throughout flood debris.

Are there any signs of it being filled on purpose? Like tipping lines or anything? Just seems so odd.
