Yesterday, 25th February 2012, saw the 2nd Dearne Valley Archaeology Day at Wath Trinity Methodist Church. What a great day! I heard some very interesting papers on the South Yorkshire Archaeology Service (Andy Lines), the (missing!) Minoan town at Knossos (Colin Merrony), community archaeology (Tim Cockerell), charred plant remains (Angela Walker), stable isotopes results from the Ukraine (Malcolm Lillie), Archaeology at Staveley Hall (Mike McCoy), excavations at Vimy Ridge (Alex Sotheran), diet and health in Roman York (Lauren McIntyre) and Rampart Scotland (David Connelly). My paper on Children Archaeology and their Unexpected Interpretations was well received, with people laughing in all the right places, phew!
