Rescue AGM – 29th April 2017

The Rescue AGM was held at the University of Salford on 29th April 2017. Our host, Mike Nevell, followed our usual AGM proceedings with a very engaging talk
“Archaeology North West: Problems and Opportunities in Saving the Past for the Future.”

 We present below a series of Tweets, photo and video from the event for those members and non-members who couldn’t join us, and for those who were they to relive it. Enjoy!

Thanks particularly to Mike Nevell @archaeology_UoS for the use of his slides and for allowing us to video him – below, but also to Tweeters who were in the audience that day – @hanamorel and @SusHeritage.
