Firstly, CAGG was shorted listed for the CBA Marsh Award for Best Community Archaeology Project. The CBA Archaeology day / AGM was held yesterday in York. Kris, Ruth, Peter and Jim went up for the event.
Although we didn’t win (and congratulations to the group from Woking who did), it was a pleasing result to be listed in the top three projects. Congratulations to all our volunteers who have worked at Verulamium over the years.
Secondly, this Tuesday sees the biennial “Near Surface Geophysics Group” conference at the Geological Society in Burlington House, Piccadilly. Those of you with good memories will recall that I gave a paper about the work at Verulamium at the last conference in 2016 (sadly, the link to storify.com no longer works as that service has been discontinued). This time round I decided to make a poster instead. As the poster is A0 (i.e., huge!), I won’t post a link to the 145mgb PDF file but I have posted a much reduced file below. Please note, however, that even this is 10mgb so you’ll probably not want to click on it on your smart phone (for those of you who have such a thing).
Lastly, depending on the weather, a small group of us may be out surveying at Ashwell Church this Sunday.
