A big thank you to Dr Brendan O’Connor for his generous gift. We look forward to using the donation for conserving and cataloguing part of our Christopher Hawkes archive relating to his work in Bronze Age archaeology. Professor Christopher Hawkes (1905-1992), who founded the Institute of Archaeology at Oxford, was an eminent prehistorian and was also instrumental in gathering material for the archives at the Institute. Keep an eye out for further information on the Hawkes project in the New Year.
Thank you also to all our volunteers and everyone who has helped us in the archives in 2012 – we appreciate your help!
