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!

Harry and I have discussed this problem. I don't think his scheme anticipated trenches proliferating a la Somme front.
With this many people digging the vicus, and with the number of trenches started and stopped due to water it really is getting cumbersome.
I rather like trench "nick names" but this is not a season long solution.
An alphanumeric system with trench coordinates is a possiblity.....
Thank goodness, and contributors, for frequent visual cues.
