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 hope nobody minds that I deleted the most recent spammer trying to sell tawdry wares. His/Her/Its site appeared to be in Malay so I doubt anybody will regret the action. But the spammers name Jodwin52 did sound just a little like "Jedward". A couple of years ago you could get a reliable reaction from Justin just saying that word. It appears to be a team of Irish low talent blokes who actually made a visit to Vindolanda and filmed themselves prancing about like dunces. Waving the "sponge on a stick" around in the toilet blocks if my memory serves. And it might not, Justin would sputter and revert to his native accent before the "Jed" part of the word was completed...

By Jupiter and Mithras, the internet forgets nothing.

Here JEDWARD

is a message recorded in the Vindolanda parking lot. If it is a fair sampling I can see why even our mild mannered Justin started frothing and raving. The Jedward bit was part of them pretending to be tour guides at UNESCO World Heritage sites for a childrens program.
