Survey Building, Adanac Drive, Southampton, SO16 0AS on Saturday 3rd
November 2012 (Note : Ordnance Survey moved offices at the end of 2010 so

In a time of financial uncertainly and the call for greater and wider public
involvement in archaeological projects, this is a very challenging period
for all those involved, at whatever level. The CBA's slogan "Archaeology for
All" provides the topic for this year's conference, and we shall look at a
range of exciting local and national community projects.
