About

Thats me that is!Thats me that is!Thats me that is!

So – you found me….

 My real name is David – a professional archaeologist with 27 years experience working mainly in the Arab Emirates, Iraq, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Jordan and of course the UK.

In 1999 he set up the highly successful (and establishment bashing) website www.bajr.org which provides invaluable information about archaeology, archaeological jobs, rights, resources software and lists…  of I like lists…..  I also like my two cats – Badger and Lulu   (or Babs and Boobs) and the visiting Tom cat Joey “feedme” Luciano.  I live in East Lothian in a converted school with my loverly wife Maggie, who runs Past Horizons world arcaheology website and toolstore…  if you want a WHS trowel – shes the woman you should contact – www.pasthorizons.com/shop

 I love nothing more than recording the impossible, drawing the incredible and travelling to places where people shoot at me….  !   

I run BAJR, Connolly Heritage Consultancy (incl – NTS Consultant), and am the Development Control Archaeologist for Midlothian…    busy I am…  and you should perhaps listen to teh weekly podcast news if you are a glutton!  At least its about other things…  not like here!

 Have a look and have a laugh…  I don’t take myself as seriously as I should

I lived in Colchester 35 years recently moved to Nacton-Ipswich I live in a Park Home on a park for retired Mainly) people The site is the original Augustinian Priory of Alnesbourne. I did belong to the Archelogical Society of Colchester and enjoyed also being an Anglian Blue Badge Guide for some time showing tourists the historical side of Colchester. I am married to a West Lothian lady and have been for 58 years, I act as Editor/publisher of a Residents Association Magazine and have researched the History of the Alnesbourne Priory for their benefit. I inluded a piece in the magazine last Spring with a picture of the Roman Circus, I would be interested to learn more about the excavation.
