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!

Question for those in the know. So, sitting here 3,000 miles away, here's what I see in one of bishpt's great pics:

Wall 1 is the southern east-west running wall that died into the robber trench.

Does it connect with north-south Wall 2? (Meaning, are they part of the same building?) And is it / are they connected to the very long east-west Wall 3 that was found early in the year?

Lastly, the arrow points to what looks like flagstone flooring going up & over Wall 1. If Wall 1 is 4th C, does this mean the flag floor is part of an even later building, maybe post-Roman?

I -so- wish I was there this year. This jumble of walls & floors & roads & drains is incredible!
