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!

With internet sort of working a few thoughts.

The area we are currently digging in is different from others I have been in over the past four seasons. The features are a road-the nicest I have seen outside the two main ones in the fort-and defensive ditches. The ditches were so deep and wide that there seems to have been minimal efforts to build later structures over them.

As such the finds are going to be different, we think. Less the sort of thing that would be lost accidentally and more the kind of stuff tossed in with intent.

Or so goes the theory.

Weather uncertain tomorrow, but overall the week looks metorologically better than the previous damp ages.

ps, I anticipate and preemptively protest photos of me that Snowglobe is likely to have taken.
