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 was digging in the area marked '1' on the week 19 map, with my sons and we were well organised by Trudi, who also coped well with the boys' banter! We shifted tons of rubble and clay on Mon and Tues and got down onto the top of the ditch - and then the rains came...

We found pieces of amphora and the neck of a glass bottle and Trudi also found a melon bead. We had to leave the potentially much more interesting stuff untouched in the ditch, which was under about 4 feet of water by Friday!
