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!

"Child skeleton at Vindolanda fort 'from Mediterranean'"
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-tyne-19399441

"Tests on the child's tooth enamel, carried out for a National Geographic Channel TV programme, showed Georgie grew up in the Mediterranean. 'It turns out the child is not from the local area and is not even from Britain, Dr Buck said. 'Until the child was at least seven or eight, they have been in southern Europe or even North Africa.'"
