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!

Continuing from 2011 & 2012, this will be the spot for a quick rundown of progress in the trenches for Vindolanda digging season 2013. Kind of a "getting your eye in" page for mapping where the digging is happening & at least some of the features coming up. As a start, here's an overview of the site. The two main excavation areas highlighted come from the Trust's official blog.

The blue box is the SE quadrant of the visible fort. The yellow-orange area is out in the vicus, among Severan barracks and 3rd C homes/shops. There is a third area in the North Field. However, the Trust has asked that North Field excavations be kept lower profile, so they will not be mapped here.

Remember, WeDig relies on you! The more you can share about where you're digging, the better the trench maps will be from week to week. Please post thoughts, ideas, & photos, and help make 2013 WeDig's best yet!
