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!

Photo 27th June. Looking south. Meanwhile back in the barracks.
Photo 1. This is one of the barrack rooms (Excavated in 2009) which has been modified over the years from early 3rd century. The winter weather had broken the soil down to fine sandy dust which was cleaned off, the floor was recorded and photographed.
The sandy dust certainly stuck to sun cream, that could have been another photo!

Photo 2. The top layer of stones were removed and cleaned down to the next level of floor, this was recorded and photographed again. Pieces of pottery, nails, including boot nails, and other rusted metal possibly spear heads were found.
