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!

I was doing some reading on Roman trade with India a while back and was dumbfounded to discover that roman coins made it as far out as Vietnam! Specifically, a site called Oc Eo on the Mekong that was excavated starting in the 1940s. Although a few "romans" may have made it to the Imperial court in China, I assume that coins traveled more freely.

Not clear from the article I read if it was from mints in the empire or were Indian copies of roman originals. Some of the Indian copies were actually equvalent in execution, and a darn site better in precious metal content.

Regarding the sink, here's a shot I took in May.
Perhaps in British everyday speech Muscle Man and Fairy are not polar opposites, but here in the Colonies it was a bit jarring.
Kind of like the Village People of household cleaning products!
