Annual Report 1986-87W J Wedlake
Camertonia 26 (1987) pp. 1 – 2.
Following closure of the Western Archaeological Trust, excavation activity has almost ceased. However starting to see the development of English Heritage. Continuing concern over financial situation. Lecture and meeting attendance good. The question of the timing of the evening meetings has arisen. Two excursions held. Volunteers still very much needed for research work at the Bath Library on the parishes survey. Thanks to Peter Greening, Arthur Clout, Win Underhay, Arthur Selway, Betty Hall and the members of the Committee. Also Leslie Holt, the auditor. Gracious (really nice) thanks on the award of honorary M.A.
