February 2022

Hello all, Kate here! February is upon us as swiftly as Mercury (or Hermes) delivering his messages… This month we have a new article from Kevin’s series “The Director’s Pit” as well as some other bits and pieces related to the Christmas blog about The Antonine Wall.

Please don’t forget, this is your website, and we’re building a community based around local archaeology. While it’s primarily focussed on Romans, if you have any interesting stories, events, or locations you’d like to promote you can use the contact form on the site to send us a message!

Social Media?

Hi everyone, it has come to our attention that a website alone may not be the most efficient way to share our content. How many of our members or followers have an active account with a social media platform?

The options we currently have to offer would be; Twitter, Instagram or Facebook – all monitored by our web manager Kate. Facebook would be the most versatile as it’s better for sharing photographs, links to articles etc.

Please leave a comment below with your ideas and opinions, this will be reviewed over the next few weeks.

Enquiries & Articles

Welcome to October (in Latin Mensis October, the 8th month). We are doing some house-keeping on the website and anyone who has expressed an interest in DROP will receive a repsonse either by phone or email across the next week – or sooner!

We have an exciting new section to kick-off the end of the year in style; From The Director’s Pit: views of the archaeological landscape. A series of articles that will be published on the website, each for a limited time. These will cover interesting archaeological finds and digs which have taken place… that you may not be aware of!

Got any Roman-centric articles, blogs or photos, you’d like to submit? Please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Website Upgrade!

Coffee is always essential when working!

You may have noticed over the last few weeks that our website has been changing. DROP now has over 40 members, and we felt it was the right time to get our site streamlined; making things easier for you to navigate.

We have adapted our menu so that you can discover all of our updates, finds and education resources at the click of a button. The aim is to have the site become a hub for all things DROP related. You may notice that some of our previously published articles now have links to relevant websites, giving you extra content.

We hope you enjoy seeing the end results, stay tuned for further news!
