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!

And a few more shots. First, a later shot of the rampart wall. Again, starting from the furthest south bit and looking north. You can also see other odd features. In the foreground, the odd & wobbly-looking line of stone running off at an angle under the baulk. Further in the distance a flagged area (floor? yard?) that spreads out west of the rampart (outside the wall?).

This next shot is of the 3rd Century strip house/workshop on the eastern side of Site 7. This photo looks east, across the vicus and to the fort (the fort is that mass of stone that lay beyond the large lone tree). In the picture you can see the well-laid drain, with a few capping stones still in place. The vicus roadway is to its right (south), and the house/shop is very prominent to its left (north).

Last shot, standing in front of the house/shop looking across it to the north. The eastern walls of the building are not so well-preserved as the western, though the floors are beautiful. And what on earth is that semi-circular "apse" doing there? Very curious.

As always, very many thanks to Terry & Pauline for great photos. What a wealth they've been adding to WeDig all year long! If you'd like to see the remainder of the photo album, here is the link.
