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!

Aug. 8th. Photo looking east.
Another one of the barrack rooms being cleared of later period floor levels to leave the structure of the original AD 212 barracks. The intermediate north/south road is just beyond the far wall and itís the fourth room north of east/west road.

Aug 11th. Photo looking north.
In the foreground a layer of clay covered by layers of burnt material, coal and charcoal and thin clay. Above that were floor levels and packing to make them level. In the background is another room with a later period dividing wall on the left.


Some of the bits.
A quantity of iron objects, lots of pieces of pottery, (including amphora and mortaria) and a few pieces of glass were found, and other nice things like the glass bead! No, not the pound coin!!

On the left the remaining upper layers with possibly a hearth or oven at the far end. On the right the clay level floor, notice the better quality building stone in the walls of the earlier period barracks.
