The department celebrated the 65th birthday of one of the department’s founding members, (and Silchester’s Project Director), Prof. Mike Fulford with cake, bubbly and an edited volume on Roman archaeology. The book (a festschrift) celebrates his academic career and contains papers on the Roman countryside, Roman towns and Roman artefacts. Copies at a reduced price (£45) for friends and colleagues of Mike Fulford can still be obtained from Hella Eckardt.
