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!

Well it's probably time some-one lowered the tone a bit here, and I feel well qualified for that. I don't know anything about archaeology, but Vindolanda is a very beautiful place to spend two weeks, the company is always interesting, and there are always new things to learn. To answer your question, Matt, I just like the sheer physicality of digging, and spending two weeks in the open air. My colleagues at work think I'm mad but it's a great, and very relaxing, change from sitting in front of a laptop. Kind of digging as therapy!
Hope to see you again next year,
Marilyn
