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!

Thanks Peter, but I think I have pictures figured out.

First day was cut short due to extreme hail, rain and wind. The trenches pooled with water and became too muddy to work with. This new session seems to get along very well, perhaps due to the amount of time spent in our elongated tea break.

Before we were interrupted after lunch by unfortunate and unavoidable meteorogical disturbances, about 4 of us continued on the work that Pierre, Richie, Brian, David, David Goldwater and a few others began last week on the inter-vallum road. The rest of the group continued to scale back, de turfing another few meters in the direction of the soil heap.

The weather changes by the minute (which is really no surprise) but the group already seems to jell well together.

I have no photos yet, and unless someone gets some on here before me than I will have some up tomorrow.

To sum up the day "What the Hail?"
