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!

"Support is invited for one of the largest excavations ever planned in Britain -- one that will uncover the entire settlement outside the gates of the Roman Fort of Vindolanda and... the complete Fourth Century fort as well.... The Trust needs 3000 a year for perhaps ten years if the work is to be completed reasonably quickly."

-- Invitation to join the new Vindolanda Trust, part of the pamphlet "The Nature of the Evidence," copyright 1971.

Little did they know!

And as an aside, while helping my Mum and Dad clear out their garage, we happened across a Vindolanda Guide, 1 A4 piece of paper folded in half mentioning the 1986 exhibit! (That makes me only three at my first visit To Vindolanda! :D ) Quite different from the snazzy shiny-papered book you get now!
Too funny! Your future was sealed at 3 1/2.

Do you still have that guide? I'm trying to collect all the various paraphernalia from over the years (*cough* Geek! *cough*). I'd love a scan or a pic of it. It can sit next to my 1973 guidebook lamenting the loss of so much perishable organic material -- which went to press literally weeks before the first of the tablets came up. B)
