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!

Well spotted Sue, I hadn't noticed the excavator updates.

The biggest news I can see is the change from a two-week recommended minimum to a required minimum of two weeks. Another change is the maximum for the season looks to be four weeks, instead of five in 2012. I can understand the thinking behind both changes, although it will make it harder for me to dig again; getting two weeks away will be a real challenge.

A couple of questions arise from the changes, could someone sign up for 3 weeks and do the two weeks have to be consecutive?
