On the theme of Brian Hope-Taylor, a belated note to say that some of Brian
Hope-Taylor's work is currently on display at Bede's World, Jarrow, and will
be for the next three days (the exhibition will close on Monday 14th July).
This includes work not in the RCAHMS archive - such as a series of drawings
for a 1945 Campaign of Archaeological Propaganda for the CBA, some of his
original drawings for the Yeavering report, copies of reconstruction
drawings of Stonehenge commissioned for the National Geographic, and the
video of a programme made for Anglia TV in the 1960s, bringing Yeavering to
the screen.  These will be touring later in the year.  Other artefacts on
display and on loan from the RCAHMS archive but not touring include Brian
Hope-Taylor's trowel and compasses.  See

New RLS Data Loaded: Project 0865 - The Dark Age Excavations of Dr Brian

The RCAHMS's "The Dark Age Excavations of Dr Brian Hope-Taylor" project
comprises 250 full data sets relating to the Brian Hope-Taylor Collection of
Dark Age archaeological sites in Britain. Brian Hope-Taylor (1923-2001) was
a remarkable archaeologist who did much to raise the standards of excavation
and archaeological illustration in Britain. He pioneered excavation
techniques on timber buildings and was especially noted for his work on
Anglo-Saxon and early medieval sites in Scotland and England.
