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!

reports in the 18th Century that a still-standing temple had just been knocked down by local farmers for building stone... It was thought to be a temple to Diana.
It mentions this being "at the west end of the station", so it all fits together very nicely. There must have been quite some excitement in the trench when that came up, ice creams all round!
