Excavations at Blacklands are spectacular, with a more complex picture emerging almost weekly. The addition of Robin Holley to the team has brought additional expertise. John Oswin’s geophysics team has continued to amaze and Lectures and Excursions have been well attended. Reference to the tragic death of Clive Peacock whose obituary is on p 44.
