Congratulations to our MSc students, who are submitting their research dissertations today and tomorrow ahead of the ESHE conference in London. It's been a great year and we have done some interesting work, travelled a bit, had a lot of fun and made some unexpected discoveries!
Well done everyone!
Thanks are due to all supervisors, technicians (Dan Comeskey!) and everyone who helped and participated along the way at the ORAU, Luminescence lab and wider RLAHA. We are also extremely grateful to all of the archaeological collaborators who worked with the students to help them with samples, site information and data, and who looked after us on various trips to sites.
