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!

December?

Hmmmmph, it would be nice to think so, Christmas spirt and all of that. However...... the speed at which those new tablets are to be dechiphered by the experts may be somewhat over optemistic. It could be that the public will be offered a glimpse but if the same experts are involved as those that looked at the Vindolanda tablets (and I suspet that this is the case) then I am afraid you may be in for a much much longer wait. We are still waiting for texts on tablets recovered from 2001 at Vindolanda, well, from the experts at least :-)

I have recently spoken to Roger, and that information is correct. He is likely to be assisted by other people who have worked on the VT material in the past, including Alan Bowman, also at Oxford.
