What a fabulous couple of days we had at Current Archaeology Live 2015! We met so many interesting people and heard about so any interesting projects!
The award we sponsored was won by Chris Stringer and his team – which was fantastic for me personally as Chris Stringer, Simon Lewis and I had crossed paths (not swords) at Boxgrove in the 1990’s – so it was great to catch-up with them again - not that they recognised me in my insurance uniform at first though.
Too many conversations with so many interesting people to remember everyone I'm afraid, but of note, the great Mr Friendship-Taylor (once met, never forgotten) of the Piddington excavations! And Fergus Milton, the magical metallurgist of Butser! Plus, the many conservation experts who advised me on the positives and negatives of owning a woolly mammoth tooth preserved with a coat of 1970s varnish! Thanks also to:
Border Archaeology Society
South Somerset Archaeology Research Group
Croydon Historical Society
Brighton and Hove Archaeology Society
Oxford Archaeology East
…to name but a few of the groups represented. So glad that we were able to make the grey world of insurance applicable to the needs of archaeology!
A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME TO TALK TO US! WE LOOK FORWARD TO SPEAKING WITH YOU AGAIN SOON AND TO WORKING WITH YOU IN THE FUTURE!!!
