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!

I think that I've settled on the Panasonic Lumix TZ-30, as it's got all the goodies plus a GPS receiver, which will be useful for TDP stuff (we're locating lots of new timbers at Vauxhall).
The gps on cameras is useful but can take some time to fix its location so if you just switch on the camera take a shot and switch off it could be out by up to half a mile! Leaving it on standby will provide better accuracy but will reduce your battery life. Gps on smart phones work faster as they use telephone masts as well as the Gps satellites . If marking small features the GPS setting may give you false results? This must be a record, two pages of a weeks digging without any actual reports of what's going on, over 800 we dig members surely someone must be on site?
