Crickley Hill reunion 40th anniversary
Saturday, 4th July 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of the start of archaeological excavations at Crickley Hill, Gloucestershire. More than 3,000 volunteers from around the world worked on the site between 1969 and 1994. The director throughout was Dr Philip Dixon, former Reader in Archaeology at the University of Nottingham. The Secretary to the excavation was Richard Savage. I rather suspect you may know either or both of them. There will be a reunion to mark the 40th anniversary.

I was one of the 3,000 and I volunteered to assist in tracing people and publicising the event. I?ve set up a blog to let people know about the reunion, the URL for which is below.

I was wondering whether you would be kind enough to help me to find Crickley veterans by installing some links on your site? I rather think your site is the kind of place that some of them would visit!

I?d be very grateful if you?d let me know whether this would be possible and even more so if you have any suggestions for other people/websites to whom it might be sensible for me to write. I?ve stayed in touch with some of my archaeological friends over the years but am not really sure how the online archaeological world works so any steers you could give me would be most welcome.

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards
Julian Parker
