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!

writing a post about my coolest find [a piece of samian ware with the owner's name scratched on the base] has made me wonder -could all the soldiers write? how common was literacy? and what do we mean by literacy? if they could write, did they all wite in Latin, or in their native languages? ....
and the pot was found near an oven - so who did the cooking in the fort? did everyone cook their own food, or was it done communally? were some people specialist cooks? ....
