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!

Hah - the printed version had two pix which included 3 volunteers (including myself) 'excavating' the well which, of course, was excavated several weeks ago. The picture left in was of a certain Dr A Birley who was on holiday this week so it may have been a file pic.

As to today: started in heavy drizzle or light rain, take your pick. No time lost, we simply laboured through it (and, yes Mr Spellchecker, laboured does have a u in it!). The day ended in sunshine although rain is now spattering against the window in the Twicey - oh no it is not - it has stopped as I type and now we have glorious evening sunshine! As to today's activities: trench 10 - the cut discovered yesterday was proved to be Roman - possibly a beam slot. Trench 9 was tidied up and people re-assigned to little jobs in 7/8. Anaerobic stuff continued at the end of the aqueduct and where I presume 'anaerobic gulch' is.

Today's pics are of the new cut that extends the sw corner of 8 towards 10. And group photos (Beth and Trudi were being naughty and played truant from the photo-shoot)
