I am very grateful to all the work undertaken by Carol Evans, Swithun Crowe, Mary Woodcock Kroble and Birgit Plietzsch. Carol and Swithun worked patiently and brilliantly to coordinate and upload the images with the GPS data. Katie Sweetman undertook some timely work on the plans.


This project has been generously supported by the AHRC, the CRF/RSE Fellowship and the Memoria Romana project. In this regard, I would particularly like to thank Irene Paulton, Wilma Mitchie, Lyndsay Mitchell and Tracy Rickard for their help.
