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!

Also, the Canadian team has posted a nice update on the work they're doing in the vicus: http://westernclassicalstudies.wordpress.com/2012/06/19/in-the-vicus-excavating-at-vindolanda/

Excerpt: "...Following a drain feature further South within the trench. This has thus far involved de-turfing a new area, troweling back our uncovered ground, and exposing uncovered features and changes in the make-up of the soil. As the sun has been shining (quite surprisingly!) and the dirt is quite wet (not at all surprising!) it has been very hard but still very pleasurable work. Signs of life abound and we are constantly uncovering pottery and animal bones all good signals that this area was well lived in by ancient peoples."

Good photos of area 7/8 too.
