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 few of Terry & Pauline's pictures:

Overview of the work area, hugging tight against the visitor path:

The massive rampart wall, looking north from the south. Latest thoughts seem to be that it's a western defensive wall for the vicus. Not sure if there were ever found any other vicus defenses to south or north.

The rampart wall again, now standing north & looking south. At its northern tip, where the wall peters out, there's a curious stone-lined feature. Definitely purpose-built. But what purpose?

Closeup of the odd feature. Did it exist at the same time as the rampart?
