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 murder victim?

Nope :-) as I have not had it yet and anyway, it is tied up to a major National Geographic program which is being filmed at the moment. This show is doing the full DNA, lead isotope and oxygen analysis and I won't comment before I get the results of this work. It would be pointless to do so...

As you can all appreciate, we are running flat out trying to get a multi-million pound project opened up by the 12th of March. Two museums, a study centre, the new site and west gate exhibitions.......etc. So I am afraid that the suspense will have to continue for the moment. However, those of you who are members of the Newcastle Society of Antiquaries will note that a report on the 2009 Temple to Jupiter Dolichenus is held within the latest volume. We are publishing the results of the excavations as and when we can.....and will continue to do so. No major publications are slated until after the completion of the work, as is right and proper :-)

However, the Vindolanda Trust is re-launching its website in a few months time (new website really) and it will be packed with lots of excellent new features and information so watch this space. Hopefully it will provide answers to most of the questions raised.

All the very best,
