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!

Week five--Small picture part two

The first image is of several flat stones placed vertically into the Antonine floor. This was felt to define a storage space. This, and all such previous features, was empty when exavated. The second image is of a previously excavated example in a somewhat later barracks block.

I did not get a picture of it, but the indomitable Anthea came up with another barracks floor feature late in the day on Friday, an amphora set into an Antonine barracks floor. This was presumably the loo, at least for late night/foul weather use.
