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!

Walked over to the site yesterday. And Harry is correct, some serious archeology is coming up. In addition to the mysterious north south ditch (?) speculated to run under the area marked as 2 in Harry's most recent map, there also appears to be an east west area of settling near the top of this area. It is sufficient to be causing some of the massive pavers of the Stone Fort II main road to sink.

Could this be not just one errant ditch but the corner of a defensive ditch system

But so very much in the wrong place!
