Sprucing up the website

About a month ago now we decided it was time to reach a wider audience by using social media and so we have lately started up Facebook and Twitter accounts. One thing leads to another doesn’t it and we’ve also given the website a new lick of paint, reorganised the menu structure and done a few other things under the hood to make the website a bit more welcoming and easier to navigate. We’re still tidying up and tinkering with the layout and this may disrupt your viewing for the next week or so but the major changes have all now been implemented. Please let us know if anything is blatantly wrong so we can sort problems out.

One of the new things here at the website is what you’re reading now, the GamArch blog, and this post is the first of what will be many more to come. Posts will touch on a miscellany of topics – including archaeological news of things beyond our area – and sometimes the posts will add to stuff we’ve covered in the fieldwork and articles pages of the website. For a more straightforward listing of events (and some local news), see the News & Events website pages.

Contributions are always welcome so do make use of us if you want to publicise an event or would like to write about anything of an archaeological nature, preferably having a local slant. Contact details are over on the Welcome page.
