The Tarradale Team
The Management team consists of Dr Eric Grant, chair and prime mover of the project.
The rest of the team is Anne Coombs vice chair, Tim Blackie, Jonie Guest and John Wombell. This part of the team is supported by Roland Spencer-Jones, chair of NOSAS and Alan Thompson treasurer of NOSAS.
We recently appointed a number of professionals to run various parts of the project.
AOC, Inverness office, will run the first year of the archaeological excavations. The leader of their team for this project is Mary Peteranna who many of you know from the Cromarty dig but several other members of their staff will be involved in the project. AOC are being joined by Steve Birch, WCAS, for the shell midden part of the dig.
Lachlan McKeggie, HAS, has been appointed as our Outreach Coordinator. Again some of you will know Lachlan from the Kirkmichael dig but he has been involved in outreach before and as a ‘local boy’ has local knowledge of the schools and clubs around Tarradale and the Black Isle.
James McComas is our IT guru and will run the TT website, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Lachlan and James have been appointed for the full 3 years of the project as has Alex Gallacher who is our essential Admin Assistant and he will deal with the numbers.
If you come to any of the Open Days you will meet members of the team who will explain what we are doing and what we have found however if you are not able to come to these days you can keep up with our progress via the website, Facebook and Twitter.
