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!

The Cumbrian helmet sold for 2.3 million pounds: http://uk.reuters.com/article/idUKTRE6962NK20101007?feedType=RSS&feedName=domesticNews. No word on who the buyer was. But it's hard to picture a local heritage body being able to come up with that price to retain it.

Edit: This article shows that Tullie House had managed to stay in the running all the way up to 1.7 million pounds, a sign of how much the people wanted it to stay put! Will be interesting to see where it goes from here.
