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!

An interesting discovery Bryan. I wonder if the well-like structure was used for storing grain instead of water. I have read that some cultures would store grain in the ground for the winter. Some of the grain would go bad, I guess rot, but the majority would be protected by the outter layer of "bad" grain and be useable at some later date. Any grains or seed found in the "well"?
