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!

Further information on getting from Newcastle Airport to Vindolanda - as TW mentioned, there is a frequent Metro service from the airport direct to Newcastle Central station. However, there is only one AD 122 bus a day from outside the station, leaving at 0930 and arriving at Vindolanda at 1109.
If that isn't possible, get the Metro to Newcastle Central and walking a short distance to the Main Line platforms, you can get a reasonably frequent train service to Bardon Mill station. This is the train that terminates at Carlisle, a few stops further on. It's a wee bit of a walk to Vindolanda from there, so a taxi from the station is your best bet. It's only a couple of miles or so, but it's mainly uphill. It's lovely countryside all around, so you should enjoy the last part of your epic journey!
