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!

We are certainly looking forward to updates on your tour of duty....the late summer weeks so often are less reported upon.

Tim - I will definitely be doing a daily report. In 2010 I did it as my own blog outside WeDig, I'm thinking I'll probably do that again. However, I do remember it sucking up at least an hour to an hour and a half of time each evening, so the thought of sending Harry 5 or 6 pictures with 1-line captions definitely has a certain appeal! B)
If nobody reports on the vicus during that week I will try to get at least some end-of-the-day shots to WeDig.

I noticed on one of snowglobe's pictures from a couple days ago what looks like a farm track running just past the southern edge of the trench. Picture attached. But I don't know if that's the same feature or is just from a recent tractor pass.

Ah, you're probably right, a much simpler explanation and the position of it looks to match pretty well with the aerial shot. I tend to look at the landscape now with the first thought that everything is Roman!
