DAG were delighted to be invited to talk to one of our local WI groups in November. Our chair, David Croot, was warmly welcomed by Sue Bohanna (she of Warminster Brownies fame!), who not only eulogised about DAG’s support for the Brownies, who are the first Brownie group in Wiltshire to gain their ‘Archaeology Badges’, but also explained that one of the Brownie fathers who came along to the dig in Kingston Deverill with his daughter was so impressed with the kind of activity that the Brownies get up to, that he enrolled as the very first male Brownie leader in Wiltshire!
The introductions over with, David tried to live up to the billing. He gave an illustrated talk to the group of 15 WI ladies covering DAG’s discoveries over the past two years with the support of the Historic England professional team and the financial support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. The group seemed very impressed with our achievements and there were several insightful questions arising from the talk.
All in all, a successful evening, and we look forward to offering similar talks in the future to local groups.
