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!

We had some weather issues last week. Various diggers tried to influence the meterological doings, none more elaborately than Alistair who built his own personal altar to the sky gods!

As you can see in the attached it is an elaborate affair, a 3rd century wall stone stood on end and with a crown of colored rocks set in what appears to be a mudpack. In front of it are offerings in the form of nails, brick bits and bones.

The efficacy was said to be minimal....
