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!

One more set of pictures from sarcanon showing what a week of sunny weather can do!

Site 4a, looking south -- the huge wall under the later aqueduct keeps going down; 5 courses visible in this pic

Posted Image
Site 4a, looking east -- the older wall also runs quite a way; what is that, at least 15-20 ft exposed?

Posted Image
Recently uncovered bit of southern edge of 4a/4b, looking east -- the diagonal-running roadway in Justin's tweets. (I will have to rethink my trench numbering scheme for sure.)

Posted Image
Site 7b/c, looking north -- the baulk between coming down and the trench opening wider

Posted Image
The southern extension of 4a/4b, looking north -- the diagonal road in foreground, the natural clay subsoil with scratch-marks behind, then the vicus aqueduct overall. Is it just me, or does that road look lower/earlier than the level of the aqueduct?

Site 4b from the south looking north along the two side-by-side Antonine ditches; N/S vicus roadway visible on right.

Site 4b/a from east looking west. How do those -massive- "causeway" stones under the aqueduct relate with the massive wall being uncovered to the right (north) of the aqueduct?

Neat stuff this year.
