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!

As requested, here are some photos from near the end of the season. You can see why Justin's having a 2 week break from his trench!

I'm looking forward to reading what Justin makes of these ditches in his report.

The eagle-eyed amongst you might spot the cement mixer in the background - the temples from 2005/6 are now consolidated and ready to withstand the Northumberland weather and next year's school parties. At least Trench B has saved the Trust some money on consolidation this year - just this one small mausoleum.

So much for Trench B in 2007 - oh well.

Hi Bryan. From memory (and using the field drains as a scale) the stone-lined well is about 1.2m in diameter internally. The other two holes you can see in the picture are also wells - the one at the back had been lined with some huge stone slabs, but none of the three produced much in the way of finds.

Hi Matt - you're right about the location, they're at the western edge of the main area in Trench B. Just south of where you ended up digging - so close!
