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!

By the way, Harry, those two roundhouses were made of rather soft crumbly stone. When excavated the curvature was incorrectly exaggerated. When you are past the fences tomorrow compare them to other excavated examples that show a much broader curve.

Those tight little roundhouses would be little more than igloos if that were their true radius!
