Great stuff but the inclusion of recipes I find totally bizarre !!!

Annie's bit is one of my favourite parts! The rest is all very good and interesting, but food, that's where the love's at.

I also like the recipes. But then I did start the Food for Archaeologists Facebook group so maybe I am food-centric....

With peace and consolation hath dismist, And calm of mind all passion spent...

I always enjoy reading these David.
They are well put together and leave other publications in the dark for layout and technology.

Gawd bless you sirs.. bless you every one! Big Grin

Maggie puts her heart into this... and for what? For everyone else. We could not do it without the amazing Felicity, that even while working in the US is still able to advise and slap us into shape.

Imagine this... a quality publication, that costs the reader nothing! but always brings in new stories.. and highlights opportunities for everyone from interested amateur to broken professional

Past Horizons needs support.. and the best form of support is reading, comments and telling more people about it.

You know it makes sense!

and thanks!
