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!

Fantastic pic, thanks for it! The end-of-the-year lag had set in pretty heavily, so it's great to see all the progress since mid-August. What a beautiful rampart.

EDIT: A few years ago, Robin started rethinking the age of that bath-house. At first they thought that it was 3rd C, built along with the vicus. But then he thought that it might be much older, Antonine/mid-late 2nd C. If this rampart really is shooting north (and therefore not cutting through the bath-house space), that seems to support the idea of the bath-house being older, and standing there at the time of that wall. Thoughts Andy?
