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!

A lot of stuff has been gathered here at WeDig over the years. Sometimes it's easy to miss. So occasionally I'd like to spotlight a page or thread that may be of interest.

So, the first installment:

Vindolanda's so big, it might seem hard to believe that most of what's on view was dug by students, volunteers, & enthusiasts just like you. Whether you're a newbie or a Vindo-veteran, it might be nice to see how the site unfolded over many, many seasons of hard work.

With that in mind, WeDig has a page devoted to revealing the 200-year history of digging at Vindolanda. Scroll your mouse over the dates on the right and watch the plan unfold on the left. For more information, press the mouse button on top of any of the dates and read the pop-up notes.

Even if you only had a week on-site, you're now part of a long & fascinating story -- one that will probably be stretching on for generations to come!
