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 great batch from Terry & Pauline last night. Terry writes: "Todays pix reflect the end of a busy and productive week. Despite dire weather forecasts, no time was lost to the infrequent rain. Excavators from all the sites were rotated in pairs to pot/bone/artefact washing for half a day. Myself, Pauline and Helen spent this week sorting, weighing, counting, recording and bagging washed artefacts. I'll be back digging next week. The area around the aqueduct is being grass seeded. As the excavations move south in the fort, the spoil heap will be removed shortly."

First, a couple shots of the extensive ditch systems being traced in the North Field:
