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!

I hope that I am not boring everyone with the pictures. I will post just one more for now. This is a feature I spotted on the other side of the wall, beyond Saughy Rigg Farm, near Caw Burn. Have any of you any views on what it may be? I know that there are roman aquaducts in that area but it looks quite interesting.

Yes Harry it was a bit of a mess with all those vehicle tracks and mud. I am hoping someone will come up with a date as there was no message or postmark on the reverse. I am keeping my eyes peeled for more postcards etc of the site in our charity shops.

Judging by the scorched grass 1975 or 1976 but I do not know the extent of the excavations at that time.

Thanks for that Nic, although I think the ground appears to be quite muddy at least in the vehicle tracks B)

Except we all know that one of the biggest features of Vindolanda is the water - not the tablets or the shoes or the etc etc :lol:
