In northern Lincolnshire Kurt Adams has succeeded Marina Elwes as the new Finds Liaison Officer. Kurt comes from a background of field archaeology and has worked across the country on a number of sites of various periods. He is particularly interested in the Anglo-Saxon migration to England and early earth and timber medieval castles.

Mark Lodwick succeeded Philip Macdonald as the new Finds Co-ordinator in Wales. Mark has worked as a curatorial assistant at the Department of Archaeology & Numismatics at the National Museums and Galleries of Wales (Cardiff) for the past seven years, cataloguing and documenting the Iron Age, Bronze Age, and Neolithic collections. This work has led to an interest in Later Prehistoric metalwork.

In Norfolk Adrian Marsden succeeds Adi Popescu as the new Finds Liaison Officer. Adrian recently completed a doctorate on Roman imperial portraiture on coins, medallions and the minor arts at Oxford University. His research interests include the radiate coinages of the third century AD, contemporary forgeries of Roman coins and Roman engraved gemstones. Adrian is also the author of Roman Coins Found in Britain to be published later this year.

Andrew Richardson has succeeded Michael Lewis as the new Finds Liaison Officer in Kent. Andrew is a native of Kent and studied archaeology at Cardiff University.
