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!

Yet another full day's graft under somewhat better conditions than yesterday - even a few moments of sunshine (or was that a dream?). General hands and knees jobs all round although the extensions on 9 and 10 did include spadework. Justin, on his tod, extended 9 south towards 10 in double-quick time uncovering a couple of large flags - the stone type not the fluttery type.

Riposte of the day (yesterday): a middle aged couple at the edge of trench 10...She: "what is your best find?". He: "your wife". Volunteer: "No, that was my best loss!"

Again - no pix. Will try and get some tomorrow.

Ice cream: roaring trade but the big debate is: lunch-time or afternoon break time? For me this is a no-brainer and wastes ice-cream eating time!
