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!

A neat aside I just learned about -- has anyone else heard about the Crosby Garrett (Cumbria) Roman helmet discovered by a metal detectorist in May? This piece is astounding! And (according to Wikipedia anyway), the image appears to be that of "a beardless Jupiter Dolichenus." Apparently it didn't need to be declared treasure since it was non-precious metal. So Christie's is planning to auction it, and Tullie House in Carlisle is trying hard to raise enough money to buy & save it for the country.
