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!

More big thanks to Mary for another great batch of shots today! Especially given the cold, wind, and rain. Hard days for digging!

Here is an updated plan for Week 4:

Sites 4a and 4b growing. A new site, 4c, just to the east of the old storehouse first exposed many decades ago. To the east of the path, Sites 1a and 1b seem to have grown and merged too.

From Mary, with her captions:
