The Annual General Meeting of RESCUE: The British Archaeological Trust will be held at 12.00 noon on Saturday 6th March, 2004 and will be followed by the annual Open Meeting at 2.00pm.
Both meetings will take place at the Museum of London, London Wall, EC2 in Interpretation Rooms B/C. There is no charge for admission and both meetings are open to non-members as well as to RESCUE members.
This year's theme for the Open Meeting is: 'The archaeological landscape: common ground or ripped apart'.
Issues surrounding the theme will be addressed by three invited speakers:
Ros Dunnett (Verulamium saved: 16 years slog)
Steve Trow (Stop Ripping up History: English Heritage's new campaign)
Dominic Powlesland (Archaeology, farmers and consumers: working towards a sustainable past in Heslerton, Yorkshire)
The papers will be followed by a discussion led by Harvey Sheldon, chair of RESCUE.
The A.G.M. will include the election of new members of the RESCUE Council - if any member of RESCUE is interested in getting more involved in the work of the Trust, then please contact me via the e-mail address below as there are currently a number of vacancies.
News of RESCUE campaigns and responses to recent consultation documents from DCMS and APPAG can be found on the RESCUE website: www.rescue-archaeology.freeserve.co.uk together with details of membership and publications.
