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!

I shall leave the major features to Harry, who seems by nature better equipped to graph them out. Unlike me he seems to have invariably colored within the lines back in elementary school. No, the small and the odd seem more my province.

Several small bronze items up today, most rather corroded. Also lots of tile, some marked and a Samian stamp.

Here are a couple of pics. First the in-floor amphora mentioned a few days back. Was it indeed the loo or a variation on the storage pit concept? Personally with all the pots about I would have found a more portable, easy to clean option.

Second pic is of a roll of stuff seemingly used to protect backfilled sites. But what a grand product name!
