Francis Pryor has been a supporter of DigVentures since its very beginnings (check him out in the Flag Fen t-shirt below!). In a blog post this week, Francis explains about the merits of crowdfunding and connecting with the people that support you. In Francis’ case, his latest crowdfunding adventure is publishing his fictional archaeological crime thriller novel, ‘The Lifers’ Club‘.
Francis is right in his blog post when he says, “It’s just like the DigVentures excavations. Those digs only work because of the people who take part. Yes, they pay, but they choose to pay. And they buy-in to the whole experience and contribute hugely to the project.” Too right! Our Venturers are part of our DNA. We couldn’t do this important archaeology without them!
