It is hard to believe that Hobley’s Heroes has now been in existence for over fourteen years, having been conceived in 2010, and subsequently aired on Facebook in 2013. Our aim and raison d'être of the site, is to document the life and times of the hundreds of largely forgotten archaeologists and volunteers who worked for the DUA, by gathering together the fragmentary scraps of paper and photos that document their lives, working on excavations across the City of London in the period 1973-1991.
