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!

"Work continues in the north field, an early start by the students to bail the trenches much appreciated. A full day was completed and the possible roman ditch running centre through the photo is being defined. Alex breached a pocket of water higher up the site and it poured beautifully through the drain on the left."

"Back in Vicus the water tank is continuing to be exposed in the centre of the photo, some water in the trenches but work is moving on a pace, plenty of new de turfing." (Site "7" on the weekly plans, standing on western edge looking east)

"Looking west towards the ticket office a nice drain is appearing right along the road way. Bottom left is the well feature mentioned by Justin. A very mixed up picture."

Thanks Pete!
