On the 2nd of November 2011, we were delighted to host a ‘mini' Personal Histories, an oral history of The Bone Room's Past: ‘Revolution' in Palaeoeconomics. A web publication celebrating this event appeared on the University of Cambridge's front page, Soon after, Charles Higham published, Higham, C. 2012. Archiving Historic Moments in Archaeology, World Archaeology 5 (2): 18-19.

Photographs from the event are loaded on and on and on our Personal Histories facebook page. The audio from the discussion should soon be editing and transcribed. The film will also soon be available.

A transcript of the seminar, and an audio recording of the second part are now available
