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!

SacoHarry 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.

You may remember a large spoil heap alongside the gate? Well it got moved the third week of May by 2 hired tractors who trundled across the North Field and dumped it over the far side.

So it was not 'one tractor pass' but 2 constantly working to and fro. It got interesting when they met passing traffic on the Stanegate! :D
