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!

Excellent start to session 9 today. We made a good start in the morning, and it began raining just before lunch. During lunch break, it started absolutely pouring. We were rained off between lunch and tea, so Dr. Beth Greene gave us an excellent lecture on The Leather Assemblage at Vindolanda. Back out in the trenches after tea, as the sun and a strong breeze had come back to dry out the site.

I'm working in the south west corner of the excavation area, removing the layers above the intervallum road. Mostly pottery, nails and a few bits of animal bone. Most exciting piece was some decorated samian with the figure of a man.

Work is continuing on the road and drain between two of the 3rd century barracks, in the north east corner of the excavation area. People are also working inside some of the barrack rooms.

A small crew is finishing up the work in the north field - they had a lot of bailing to do today.
