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!

Justin-T: I edited out some information on the small finds, hopefully it's a better shade of vague now. Let me know if not and I'll pare it down further.

There's no definitely no leg-pulling about the altar. Unfortunately it wasn't complete but it was a sizeable piece with clear inscription on it, and a laurel wreath carved around it. One of the words wasn't immediately recognisable, but the others showed it was, I think, dedicated to Diana, goddess of the Hunt by either the first or second cohort of Tungrians. I got a few photos of it but I'm not sure if I'd be overstepping a mark by sharing them - unsure of the protocol here!

Perhaps a bit later on today I'll have some time to sit down and sort through the photos and put together some panoramics and hopefully some of you will be able to see areas that you've been working in.
