New Archaeologist For Gibraltar
The GHT welcomes the appointment by the Government of Gibraltar of Dr. Kevin Lane as city archaeologist for Gibraltar. The Trust has been highlighting the need for such a post for a number of years now especially with regards to required research and watching briefs ahead of and during developments.
There is a wealth of potential information on our past unearthed everyday during excavation works associated with a wide variety of projects. But archaeology is not just limited to below ground level works. The skills of an archaeologist can inform interpretation and management of a site prior to disturbance and well as reaching into best conservation and heritage management practices. The Trust looks forward to continuing it's working relationship with GoG and the Ministry for Heritage.
