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!

Another nice set of shots from Terry & Pauline for Tuesday (my apologies for lateness in getting them posted!). Pauline writes: "Diggers had a cooler day generally with some rain though it wasn't bad enough to stop digging. We made inroads on the malted milk biscuits over a rainy lunchbreak. In the fine old traditions of the British weather in June it looks as if the rest of the week will be cooler and rainy. A Belgian film crew arrived during the morning and interviewed Andy. They talked to Sarah from the Canadian Field School and Lynda as well."

A nice shot from the southeast corner looking westward across the more recently-exposed area -- including the gaping robber trench in the distance

As always, more & higher-res photos here! Thanks much!
