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!

Sorry for the delay guys but I have been having a personal battle with my laptop and the wireless at the hotel I am staying at.
As Chalie mentioned it has been an interesting week and although we lost 2 sessions plus a full day on Wednesday the team has still managed a smile and a good amount of toil.
We had stripped back several meters of turf by Monday before rain halted us in the final session. Tuesday, Thursday and Friday saw us stripping back layers to reach the levels of the previous weeks.
Apart from the building on the Eastern rampart the only other structures appeared to be at the Western end of the site where Mark and I are trying to find some order to the jumble of stones discarded there.
Andrew's theory is that the remainder of the trenches are part of one big robber trench hence the lack of features between east end and west end.
Still the team working this ground were of hardy spirit and still managed a smile by end of week 1.
There were still some good finds and all are looking forward to week 2.
Paul
