Our new IHSO, Dr Mike Nevell, started on 2nd March. 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 email@example.com, and his personal blog is available at http://www.archaeologytea.wordpress.com.
