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!

Thanks for this insight into the pitfalls of being a digger! (It reminds me of fools gold. I once jumped into a cold stream in Colorado to get hold of something gleaming - only to find it was fools gold.) But, I would imagine, that when you do find a real artefact, the time and effort you have put in must make it especially pleasing. (Having weak eyes these days and even worse knees, I have not been able to dig with you - I have to enjoy the digging vicariously through your insights and photos.)

Thanks for sharing this with us.
