Rescue – The British Archaeological Trust have been working for British archaeology for the last 40 years. We continue to campaign, and represent archaeology at a wide level, as well as giving support to those protecting heritage up and down the country. From 1971, being responsive to our members has been key to our advocacy role for heritage.
With this in mind, we are excited to announce the launch of eRescue – a new digital service that will enable us to take our advocacy forward in a digital age, where we need to be able to react quickly to the ever changing threats to heritage in Britain.
What is eRescue?
eRescue is our online shop, where you can securely and instantly buy Rescue products. All purchases directly support our work. The shop is currently selling:
- Digital downloads. A selection of pdf files are available for instant download. At the moment this is a collection of old copies of Rescue News, with more to follow in short order.
- Our books. Our books are all available for sale, with discounts automatically applied for our members.
- A selection of Rescue branded products, delivered by associate retailers, with profits going to support the work of Rescue.
Benefits for Rescue members
You can join Rescue online, quickly and easily. Members receive RESCUE News – our flagship publication – three times a year, details of meetings and conferences and discounted prices on our publications. However, you will now also receive exclusive access to online content.
To launch the site, we have posted a video of Dominic Powlesland’s recent excellent talk from the Rescue AGM:Rescue Archaeology: then, now and in the future. A lively and engaging talk is now available online for all our members to enjoy.
We have sent out an email with login details to all Rescue members for whom we have an email address. If you haven’t received this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tell us what you think
You may have noticed that we have redesigned our main website to incorporate this new service. We would love to know what you think. As an independent voice for British archaeology, we aim to represent our members so hearing what you think is vital.
