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!

Can imagine a Feb filming wouldn't be ideal!

I also imagine that with the building & rebuilding at Vindolanda, infrared satellites would be hopelessly confused! Still, it makes me wonder if it's a more efficient (cheaper) way of quickly determining, say, the extent of "urban sprawl" from fort sites. Or perhaps for finding the "missing" Stanegate east of Vindolanda -- or the fortlets that your grandfather hypothesized on but haven't been discovered yet.

It's neat to think of it anyway.
