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!

Welcome to We Dig Vindolanda!

We visited the British Museum during the October Half Term and it was great to see some of the Vindolanda Tablets on display IN THE FLESH rather than as photographs. Much as it is important for as many people as possible to be able to see them, it is a shame that they are not able to be kept at their place of origin.

Just wondered if the Timewatch programme which will hopefully attract more visitors might also get the public more interested in wanting to see the tablets 'in situ' so to speak?
Is it possible to monopolise on this in terms of funding storage?
Sue :huh:
