Just a five-man team to start with! It had definitely expanded by 76 when I started. I always found it interesting that Brian commuted from Coventry..seemed a long way to me..at the time..

 40 Years On: The development of the Greater London Historic
Environment Record 

Peter James

 As many will know, the Historic Environment Records (HERs) which now serve the information needs of archaeologists, planners, and academic or amateur researchers across the UK are the successors to the ‘Sites and Monuments Records’ (SMRs) which local authorities first began to develop in the 1970s.In 1982 plans were drawn up and the foundations were laid to create such a record for London. 2022, then, marks the 40th anniversary of the Greater London SMR/HER.

An Eventful Week in Carthage

Chrissie Harrison

 Sometime in the spring of 1990 whilst shopping in Habitat, Tottenham Court Road, I bumped into Paul McCulloch. We sat on a sofa and had a chat about the archaeological excavations in Carthage which he would be supervising in the coming summer. This conversation led to a welcome invitation to visit the site.

Found your site through seeing postings on Pete Rowsomes Facebook page.

I worked for the DUA from 79-82. Well Court 79-80, Cannon Street 80, St Peters Hill 81-2, Bishopsgate 82.

Also drew a couple of cartoons for Radio Carbon, won the baloon debate, and was involved in the union. I dug out a few photos from that pre-digital age.

The first two b/w ones have Pete Rowsome, Pete Cardiff, Dominic Perring and John Maloney.

Visit to Crosswall 1

 

This was Well Court team 1979/80 on a visit to another site, but I can't recall which, could be John Maloney's Crosswall. The crane might be a giveaway?

Visit to Crosswall 2

 

The first colour photo has myself, Simon Grant, and Marie Nally on a St Peters Hill day out at Fishbourne Roman Palace.

Visit to Fishbourne

 

Last one is myself at St Peters Hill.

PS. I was also on Bevis Marks...
