Thirty years is an amazing milestone. Back in 1992 CA had just 16 staff and wafer-thin reserves. Today we employ over 260 professionals and are a financially secure and resilient charity. Under Tim’s chairmanship we have moved from a sole office in Cirencester to operating from other bases in Andover, Milton Keynes, and Suffolk as well. CA has been remarkably successful and has an excellent back catalogue of high-quality publications and reports to document our endeavours. Our outreach and engagement activities also create lasting memories for many people. We have been a positive force in British archaeology and will continue to be so. The Board of Trustees demands that we strive to continually improve the quality and efficiency of what we do, and this makes every day a fresh and exciting challenge for my colleagues and I. There is plenty more we want to achieve, but today it is right that we look back and celebrate Tim’s incredible dedication and interest in all that Cotswold Archaeology does. Those values are deeply rooted in our company. Thank you, Tim, for all the time and energy you have devoted to our cause.
