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!

Just watched an amazing piece about an Egyptologist who is using infrared satellite imagery to reveal a wealth of never-before-known sites in Egypt -- pyramids, worker villages, even possibly one of the early (now missing) capitals.

Anyway, the tech works because the infrared light penetrates a few feet into the ground, and has accuracy down to about 1 foot.

With all the wealth of features/vici/etc. under the ground around Vindolanda (and the Wall in general), is anyone in the UK looking at satellite archaeology? It looks like a real game-changer.
