|Yes, it's AGM time again folks! Our third Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday 17 March at the Marwood Social Centre, Kinninvie, Barnard Castle DL12 8SH. We hope that members will make a special effort to attend and show their support for the work of the group.
The AGM will begin at 11am and we aim to deal with the formal part of the meeting as swiftly and efficiently as possible so that we can move on to the two presentations that have been lined up for our enjoyment.
Many of our members took part in AA's survey and preliminary excavations at the Well Head deserted medieval settlement in Holwick, Upper Teesdale during 2017. Martin Green and colleagues will be reviewing the results of the work we have completed to date on this fascinating site and looking ahead to a second phase of excavation we plan to undertake this year. This will be an important opportunity for us to discuss this ongoing project and evaluate what has been achieved so far.
In our second presentation, AA member Liz Ryan will be sharing with us some of her research into Scandinavian influences in the Tees Valley. The early medieval archaeology of the North Pennines features strongly in AA's current research strategy and Liz's work throws light on a very important aspect of the social and cultural changes that occurred during this period.
We hope you can join us at Marwood on 17th March. Guests, as well as members of Altogether Archaeology, will be most welcome to attend.
