A constructive preliminary meeting about the new Archaeology group was held on 5 November. Val Arundel has agreed to lead the group, with immediate support from Peter Horitz and Frank Pemberton. There are a lot of practical arrangements to be made, such as dates, times, venue and, of course, the initial focus of studies. More information will be circulated by email as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you have not yet recorded your interest in the new group, it would be helpful if you would let Val know of your interest by emailing her on firstname.lastname@example.org.
