Our new Industrial Heritage Support Officer for England, Dr Mike Nevell, started on 2nd March and is looking forward to meeting and talking to all the members of the industrial heritage networks over the next few months.
Mike has over 25 years of experience in industrial archaeology and industrial heritage. His previous post was Head of Centre, at the Centre for Applied Archaeology, University of Salford. He might be familiar to some, though, through his past roles as a Trustee of the Council for British Archaeology and co-editor of the Association for Industrial Archaeology’s international journal, Industrial Archaeology Review. He has been involved with many local groups and local museums over the last three decades, and has occasionally appeared on archaeology television programmes. Mike’s specialist areas include stationary steam engines, textile mills, warehouses and workers’ housing, and the archaeology of industrialisation, on which subjects he has published extensively.
Mike can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org, and his personal blog is available at http://www.archaeologytea.wordpress.com. Don’t forget to follow the IHSO project on twitter @IHSOengland and on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/IHSOengland
