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!

Wet and windy start for day one. Operations commenced with an introductory 30 minute introduction by Kevin. Followed by a trip around the new, very impressive museum. A short break for tea (naturally), then out into Northumberland's finest April weather. No stoppages! Typically, as we were finishing at 4.30, the sun and blue sky came out.
Twenty six excavators, split into 5 teams of 5 (one had 6) and each allocated an area to do the business.
No spoil heap initially (gasp), but a pimple north of the North gate is now growing.
Rain is forecast tomorrow morning and then fine for the rest of the week. Halleluja!
Photos will probably follow at some point.
