Survey on Protection ofr Pre-Christian SitesLorraine Brooks, a Masters student at UWE is conducting a survey as part of her dissertation on whether there is sufficient protection afforded to all pre-Christian sacred sites. If you have visited a pre-Christian site in the last 5 years, you are invited to take part in the survey. It's just 10 questions long aimed at site users and their views on why they use the sites, views on access and whether they think there is enough protection on the sites. There is no requirement to login or provide personal details.
Essex from Iron Age to Silicon Age
Twenty-six keen history seekers visited Essex between the 18th and 22nd September 2013. The sun may not have shone much, but the party was cheerful and digital cameras were working hard. Ambresbury Banks near Epping represented the Iron Age; the amazing story of the regeneration of the ruined Copped Hall and its gardens, and the use of geophysical surveys, represented the Silicon Age. Some of the views recorded on members' cameras are here on Flickr - Contributions by Anthea Jones, Angela Newcombe, Jinx and Peter Newley, Rebecca Starr and Frank Willy.
