CLASP participated in the recent Heritage event, part of the MK@50 events, held in Campbell Park on 17/18 June. As part of our display we were, very generously, lent some plastic reproduction tesserae by the Deanshanger Village History Society. We offered visitors the chance to make their own model mosaics using these. 76 people, mostly children, did so. Each person was given a dual-language certificate recording their participation and signed by Dave.
LOOK HERE for a gallery of almost all of the mosaics!
It was with great sadness that I have to report that our colleague and Trustee, Gren Hatton, passed away peacefully in the early hours of today, 11th July 2017.
Gren maintained his drive and enthusiasm for things historical and archaeological in West Northamptonshire and beyond virtually until the end. His work on the technical Case Studies and developing a ‘house style’ have helped put CLASP very much on the map.
At a recent national conference his work for the Atlas of Hillforts of Britain and Ireland Project received specific mention from the platform as being of the standard of a thesis.
Thank you Gren!
Our thoughts are with his wife, Sylvia and wider family.
