TAS Lecture Reminder | Tue 25 May 2021

Altogether Archaeology and community archaeology | Tony Metcalfe

Tony Metcalfe is the Chair of Altogether Archaeology (AA). A former teacher, he now serves on the advisory committees for the North East of England Research Framework (Historic England), and Belief in the North East project (Durham University) representing community archaeology groups.

Tony will outline the history and activities of AA, which began as a group set up by the North Pennines AONB and now operates independently. The aim of AA is to promote awareness of the archaeological heritage of the North Pennines and the surrounding area; by the involvement of its members of all ages; in archaeological fieldwork and research. AA provides opportunities for members to extend their knowledge of archaeological methods and practice by research, fieldwork and training. Activities have ranged from Name Books, surveys, excavations to finds processing, involving people from schoolchildren to members in their 80s.

Zoom etiquette

A. The link to join the talk by Zoom is below. The link will be open from 7:20, for a lecture start at 7:30.

B. All participants will be muted for the duration of the talk. This is to avoid any unnecessary background noise and the potential for people to talk over the speakers.

C. For Q&A at the end, please use the chat function. Once the questions are in the chat, the host will then pick up on these for the speaker to answer them. Hopefully this way, nobody’s questions will be missed.

D. We may periodically mute the Zoom microphones or switch off the Zoom camera feed from all or some members at any point in the event. Please don’t be alarmed if this happens to you: we’re just tweaking the settings for what happens between the Zoom server and the Zoom software used by participants, to conserve bandwidth, prevent technical feedback, or minimise distraction.

E. Finally, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY THESE TALKS BE RECORDED OR PHOTOGRAPHS BE TAKEN OF THE SPEAKER OR MEMBERS. Some members have expressed that they DO NOT CONSENT to having their photographs taken or to being recorded so we are not permitting any recording or photography for our online lectures. Thank you all in advance for respecting this and for complying.

F. Please do not share the Zoom link below – if you have friends who would like to join TAS temporarily for free to access our talks please suggest that they email us via  teesarchsoc.news@gmail.com (mailto:teesarchsoc.news@gmail.com) – to be added as a virtual member.

We hope to “see” as many of you as we can! 
Best wishes, 
Deputy chair and communications
