Happy New Year!
We hope you had a fantastic Christmas break filled with rest.
This month’s meeting features this year’s AGM and an excellent talk from Dr Rob Young. This concerns how the social context of industrial archaeology can be understood through considering the lives of ordinary people. This can be done through examining sources which are often overlooked by the empirical study of monument types, including vernacular song.
Dr Rob Young is a freelance archaeological consultant who is the former English Heritage/Historic England, Inspector of Monuments for the North East.
At this year’s AGM, there are a number of posts which are up for election. These are:
- Chair of Teesside Archaeological Society
- Events Officer for Teesside Archaeological Society
If anyone is interested in sitting in on the committee please get in touch with Dave or any of the other committee members.
