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 pictures! Thank you much Pete for those.

For those interested, the water channel which is being re-excavated (Pete's picture http://z1.ifrm.com/7061/121/0/p1024097/Vindolanda_April_2012.jpg_12.jpg) was first dug by Eric Birley back in 1931. He left a great report on his finds (available here) including good pics of how it looked some 80 years ago:

Stones & dirt. The more things change, the more they stay the same!
