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 16.

After almost three years of seeking a decent stone vicus building it looks like we have finally clipped the corner of one! A fab effort saw a hearth and a collection of glass beads appear in conjunction with the existing stone wall. It's looking promising so far.

Elsewhere Imelda Marcos would have been proud of our collection of shoes: a sewing needle and three wood combs might point to industry asssociated with our leather workshop. Other news of the timber buildings is that one of them is going around the bend, (some might say in reflection of the archaeologist!) so perhaps we have some form of stock pen. Time will tell on that one, but as per usual in area B, a multitude of later features have chopped away bits of the evidence.

Anyway, it has been another very successful week, so I owe a hearty thank you to the volunteers of week 16 for putting in such a sterling effort, it was a pleasure to work with you all.
