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!

This will be the week for catch-up of the week-by-week digging progression!

So, back to that long-ago...

(April 9 - April 13)

The wet weather was already setting in, and the flooded trench marked #5 on Week 1 was left fallow, along with #3 across the E-W path. Meanwhile, to the west, the area around the aqueduct (#4) was expanded, and a very nice cobbled road surface was found in area 4b.

Work continued on areas 1 & 2, with walls, hearths, pottery dumps, and beam slots coming into view. Many thanks to snowglobe & Sue Munro for the details & ton of great pictures, which can be seen here!
