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!

The cloudy start ended in a very sunny day, plenty getting moved in wheelbarrows. I am now removing the cap of clay on the north end of the severan ditch (now freed the water is rising nicely under my boots!)
photo 1 shows the slab which was lifted this week and the hole is behind it with the alter base
photo 2 is a general photo of the site taken from cardiac hill!
photo 3 is of the causeway over the severan ditch running along side the aqueduct, more stones exposed since the last image
Photo 4 showing my trench (top square) opening up into the severan ditch looking from the diggers hut towards the bath house
Photo 5 a new trench cut across the Antonine ditch, hard work for that team helped by Andy. there are marked showing post holes on the right of the ditch
Photo 6 showing the N - S road as cleaned today looking good.
