Bulletin 29 (August 2009)

Forthcoming GWAG Events

Thought you might like to know about a couple of forthcoming events....

First - Bristol University are hosting a conference on 24 October 2009 - Conflict Archaeology of the Modern Era - please find further details via the link below. The day will be introduced by our own John Winterburn and the list of speakers and subjects certainly whets the appetite! Contact details are also in the pdf file via the link.

Secondly - The Friends of the Lincoln Tank are welcoming Andrew Robertshaw to speak in Lincoln on 16 September - his subject being 'Digging the Trenches' - The Archaeology of the Western Front. Click on the poster for a larger view.

The short course at Sedgeford Airfield in July went extremely well, with some excellent archaeology and, I understand, an enormous number of artifacts for examination and investigation! Dave and I spent a morning there, giving a short geophysics workshop and all involved seemed to be having a marvellous time. We would certainly have loved to have spent more time there.... Watch the website - there will be a short resume on the course posted soon.

Also, don't forget it will soon be the 4th Jordan season - the 2009 prospectus is on the GARP website.

Kind regards
