There was also a very successful two day conference in London back in
June. The timetable itself demonstrates the rich and varied number of
projects around the country.
Note also (I think this may have been mentioned here before) that
Heritage Link has been commissioned by EH to

would reflect the variety, quantity, quality etc of such involvement,
has yet to be properly 'audited' by these members. David's idea is spot
on - that some central resource is established to allow the existence
of these projects to be gathered in one place - and a useful 'showcase'
for anyone outside our profession who might need 'persuading', with
facts, that Community archaeology is very much alive, flourishing and
something with which many of us pros are proud to be associated.
