Happy New Year everyone,
May I just remind everyone interested in and concerned for the future of the
archaeology of mining and quarrying in England, NAMHO has organised two
important seminars to take place in forthcoming weeks. The first will be at
Caphouse in Yorkshire on 21st January and a second will be held at Sidcot in
Somerset on 11th February.
The morning sessions will comprise talks by a range of authorities on
relevant topics and, following a buffet lunch (provided free to all
delegates who register in advance), there will be group discussions about
the results of the assessments and the options for future research in
England. A full programme is available on the NAMHO Website.
These sessions will offer a chance for everyone to express opinions as to
what direction future research might take. It could be your chance to
influence a national research agenda and to promote whatever aspects of
mining archaeological research you believe to be important. The outcome of
our deliberations will help shape English Heritage's thinking on the topic
for years to come so this is a great opportunity and not to be missed!
If you have not already done so, please register your intention to attend
the event with myself (Project Officer) so that we may estimate for
Dr Phil Newman MIFA, FSA (NAMHO Project Officer)
