David Petts makes many interesting points with which I would agree. CBA
West Midlands voted at its 2002 AGM to set aside £1000 to offer grants of
up to £100 to local groups who may have needed to buy in expertise in
training in various aspects of archaeology. Interestingly not one approach
has been made to us! However, undaunted, we voted to keep that money set
aside for the next year at the 2003 AGM held on Saturday last in Warwick.
So if there are any groups, societies within the CBA West Midlands group
region, who feel they would benefit in developing a local project in this
way, let's have your applications!
