Sorry for the recent lack of updates. Alex has been overrun by work so I have offered to help and try and keep the website updated. I have only made slight changes to the site although it has been completely re-written, so if you are having any trouble with the new site, want to make suggestions or you just want to complain, please e-mail me.

Thanks to Matt, Steve, Chris and Pauline.
2006-04-13 by Alex
For offering useful ideas, hints, tips and suggestions for the rebuild of the WAG website. I hope that everyone finds it easy and useful to use, I also hope it encourages more people to join in. Any feedback would be appreciated, head into the forum to let me know if there are any problems.

Portable Antiquities Scheme added
2006-04-11 by Alex
I’ve added a link to the "PAS" from the Home page as I think that this is a valuable scheme and it helps us to better understand our past. It also makes sure that the public are involved in building a better picture of the past, which is a really important part of archaeology.

Dedicated News page now added
2006-04-11 by Alex
After much thinking, I’ve decided that the Home page needed to be a little simpler and present different information, to do this I thought that adding a dedicated News page would help me achieve that aim, click on the “comments” link above to let me know what you think.

2006-04-10 by Alex
