News has just come through that TAS has received some new funding from the Mick Aston Fund.
Mick Aston, who passed away in 2013, is regarded as a key figure in the popularization of archaeology through the development of the long-running Channel 4 programme “Time Team”. A fund set up in his name is particularly focused on encouraging greater community involvement and makes grants of up to £1,000, which are very useful to local societies like ours.
Our recent application secured the maximum award and will be used to gain an evaluation of some of the 2000+ stones we collected from our investigation of a local mesolithic site.
All we have to do now is work out how to get them to the expert. Anyone got a very large envelope?
