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!

Week 14.

Well I suppose it had to happen eventually, but the weather broke this week and made life exceptionally frustrating indeed. In and out of the tea shed like yo yo's, the week 14 team were brilliant in putting up with the worst weather Northumberland could throw at them with grit and determination to make the best of it all. A massive thank you to everyone for making what could have been a disaster for the archaeology, with us all plodging about in it, actually fairly easy to manage.

We now have even more posts popping out all over the place and some of them are real whoppers! The buildings seem to line up very nicely with similar wattle fences found way back in 2000, which is nice, but there is still insufficient to establish conclusively what they were used for as yet. There has been some stunning preservation and I'd expected a few writing tablets by now if I was honest, but the amount of horse muck, coupled with the fact i've yet to meet a horse that could write, may explain some of that! Might we be in a stable housing some of our Vardullian cavalry? Maybe time will tell.......
