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!

Weather - dark cloud all around all day but we seemed to have a private gap and we probably have some lobsters - certainly I have a white stripe on my wrist where my watch lives!

In summary - dateable finds in north field. Trench '9' extending towards '10' and '10' extending to '9'. The roadway in '10' may only be a pathway, or a wall foundation or ??. A 1970s(?) drainage trench was excavated. Other people were doing other things but I do not know what - apart from guddling in quick-drying mud!
