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!

Viewing Single Post From: farewell MMXII
[ *  * ]
Some MMXII musings from this side of the world, in no particular order. Two fantastic weeks (Fridays rained off), great company, some familiar faces, lots of laughs, wet shoes etc, North Field then the vicus, deturfing, pickaxing, finding a peice of flint and being so chuffed that I could hold the marker pole, meeting the delightfuln Canadians students, learning from Andrew, Justin, Kate, Beth and Alex and digging colleagues, walking the plank with multiple wheelbarrow loads,( being happy that I had done some weight training), lunch and afternoon tea chats with fellow diggers, icecreams (oh that Raspberry Ripple), the adventure of climbing Barcombe Hill in the rain on Friday pm (must do that walk in sunshine), the quarry and its graffiti, wheelbarrows falling into water-filled ditches, midges troubling lots of people (my Aussie skin must prefer mozzies),chatting with Justin about Rugby, admiring the accuracy of Vindolanda weather forecasters, yes lots of wonderful memories, my appreciation to all.
One disappoinment though - my Week 10 and 11 photos - not worth posting, apologies.
Do I say roll on November 1st?
