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!

Very, very well preserved wood. What I can't post is the delightful smell of anaerobes that still lingers on my hands. Time for a shower.

Spoil heap management is an issue. This morning we came on site and found the "Andrewnine Wall" across the top of the heap! An obvious direction on where to dump!

Some rather nice bricks popped up just before rain shortened our day.

Seems to have one half of a script message on it. Tantalizingly close to readable.

I rather like this one.

The indents near the top are either animal tracks or more likely a series of finger imprints from the brickmaker.
