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!

hippacrocrapig (interesting nom de cursor that) welcome indeed.

There tends to be a lapse of a few days to eternity for the posting of pictures. Most people have to get back home and get their lives back off vacation before posting. The invaluable Michael lives locally.

Vindo is that rarest of experiences, a true adventure in the modern world. I was pretty astounded after my first visit, and am gearing up for my third. I shall be applying trowel to cobblestones in area B in 16 days.

In addition to photos, WeDiggers live for digging accounts. Tell us what you can!

But keep a couple guidelines in mind.

Items of genuine archeological import, like last years altar, should be announced to the world at the discretion of, and in person by, the Vindolanda Trust. Don't even tease us with hints.

And, be very careful when discussing anything that might attract shady night time metal detectionist raiders. Its ok to mention pottery shards, bones, features like roads and foundations.

Not ok to mention if you found a hoard of aurei!

Borderline call: small late roman coinage. I think its ok to say you found some of this stuff, but I would add that there were nails everywhere!

Did they find that north south road yet?
