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!

Amongst today's extra-mural activities pot-washing was performed in shifts. The usual chucking of stones and finding of small finds was achieved. Amongst the latter was a gaming counter and a bit of beaded glass. For those that did the late shift they missed digging in horizontal rain. Shelter was taken outside the East Gate and a brief return was made but the trenches were becoming muddy and slippery.

Amongst finds were another arrow-head and also a perfume jar (piece of) which yours truly got chastised for because he did not recognise it as being a small find - apparently it is rare.

Photos were taken at close of play 'cos Fiona had forgotten her camera. They run from West to East with plenty of overlap (I hope). They have been reduced to 20% of actual to make them visible sans scrolling. Full size they are about 2.5-4+m so I hope no one wants a full blown copy mailed!
