Charles Lambie Developer Awards

February 5th, 2014

Developer Awards have been awarded in the past, but from this year will carry the name of our former Chairman, the late Charles Lambie, who inaugurated the awards in 2010.

This year awards are presented to: Princess Olga Romanoff for supporting building recording work at ‘Provender’, Norton; UPP Group and the University of Kent for supporting archaeological excavations prior to the construction of Turing College, University of Kent; Wienberger Ltd, for continuing support of excavations in advance of brickearth extraction at Claxfield Farm; and the Dean and Chapter of Canterbury Cathedral for building recording and recent excavation in the Cathedral Precincts.

A new display at the Whitefriars Roman Tower Exhibition (close to the bus station) illustrates some of the work undertaken for the recipients of this year’s award.

Transmanche prehistory from the air

December 5th, 2013

The final public lecture in the series as part of BOAT1550 BC takes place on Thursday 12th December, at 7pm in Dover Museum’s Education Room. It will now be by John Hammond, rather than Paul Bennett as advertised. John’s doctoral thesis was on cross-channel contact in the Bronze Age so it should be interesting to hear his take on ‘Transmanche prehistory from the air’.

Hope to see you there!
