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!

Harry neglects to mention a notable event. Last night at Twicey Quiz one of the Vindolanda teams was able to secure third prize, a dime store fake budgie. (Only, it must be noted, by trading the second prize, a bottle of red wine).

Clearly we needed something to attach to the photographic marker stick used to record small finds and features.

In the first image our own Saco Harry proudly holds high the standard of Legio I Budgiecum after finding a nifty mortaria stamp.

Second image is a close up of the standard. The budgie is now safely packed for Harry to take home to his bird loving daughter.
