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!

More pursuit of walls and drains, some of which continue to be elusive.

A brooch turned up today, and the mass of amphorae fragments remains impressive. What happened there?

Walking by the spoils heap this morning I noticed a white balloon fluttering on the mound. It was from a furniture store grand opening! Amazing how later material can find is way almost anywhere. Out of curiosity I surveyed the pile looking for other extraneous modern stuff. All I noted were a few chips of green paint-I have been tough on the wheelbarrows this week and it does chip the paint-and a pen that Kevin was looking for earlier in the week.
