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!

Vindolanda Week Six, Day “minus one”

A long weary journey to the familiar environs of Vindolanda.

The good folks at the Hedley Center were kind enough to let me check in early, after which I slept for 4 solid hours.

Up and at ‘em for dinner and a rather enjoyable “First Pint at the Twicey” where we had more than half of the Week Six crew in attendance.

I have decided that any speculation on the weather is bad luck, so I can simply report that one hour before the start of the digging week there is nothing coming out the sky but sunshine.

Ran into Andrew on an early morning stroll. One word description of the site thus far:

“Wet”.

Internet connection from the Hedley is not working, so I shall post this from the Twice Brewed this evening. Ah, the lengths to which your intrepid correspondent will go to keep you informed. But we must all sacrifice for the advance of knowledge, indeed we must.

Overlooking the north east corner of the fort….
