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!

It's very exciting and I'm all for new discoveries, particularly when they get people interested in archaeology/ancient history. From the odd comment I've heard (so don't shoot me as it's not much more than rumour), the tablets are stylus-type palimpsest. There is a good shot of one on this.
