LAF Agenda

Nathalie Cohen – Becket and London – As the new exhibition at the British Museum on Thomas Becket: Murder and the Making of a Saint opens, Nathalie will be considering how Becket’s links to London are evident in history and archaeology. Nathalie led many events for CBA London during her time with Thames Discovery Programme and MOLA, and as Cathedral Archaeologist at Southwark. She’s now archaeologist for Canterbury Cathedral and National Trust South East.

Caroline Raynor – HS2 Euston station – Caroline is a Project Manager and Principal Archaeologist at Costain Skanska who was responsible for the design and delivery of the HS2 Euston Cemetery archaeological excavations. She spoke to an earlier LAF and now the excavations are complete, and the post-excavation works started, she will now be giving us an initial insight into the results of the investigations.
 
Alistair Douglas – Bermondsey Abbey excavations – Alistair is the H&S Manager at Pre-Construct Archaeology who has worked on and supervised excavations across London for 30 years. These have included some of those undertaken at Bermondsey Abbey in Southwark. Now that he is close to completing the publication of the monograph on these investigations he is going to talk about an aspect of his research.

We look forward to seeing you there!
