some of you might be interested in the one day conference on archaeological geophysics being held at the Geological Society in Piccadilly on the 4th December. See for details and a link. I am presenting a poster on our work at Verulamium. Cost is £25 concessions, £30 full with lunch and coffees.
Best wishes, Kris.
