Last night was the launch of the Ironbridge Archaeology Seminar Series or IASS as I’m now calling it. Despite the sunny evening and the traffic gridlock in Ironbridge (all because of a bus) we had a fairly good turn out with approximately 15 people attending. I even managed to keep my talk to time (I do have a tendancy to ramble on a bit sometimes) and judging by the questions that followed everybody seemed to follow the content and may even have found it interesting. I’m hoping that this will be a series that will grow, with a programme quickly booking up nearly a year in advance. The next talk will be on Tuesday 6th August by Dr Ian West from Leicester University and an active member of IAVG, on the subject of technology in the country house – an archaeological perspective. Lets aim to double the attendance on this one and see a few more new faces in the audience, after all this series is open to anybody and everybody and aims to make archaeological research accessible to all.
