This talk was given at DigNation ’18, a crowdfunded festival organised by DigVentures and Sir Tony Robinson in honour of beloved Time Team archaeologist Mick Aston.

Julian Richards is one of the few speakers who WASN’T on Time Team, but he was one of Mick Aston’s very close friends. In this talk, Julian shares stories from the early days before Time Team existed, and before Mick had a beard!

Plus cake, notebooks, and how to get out of doing admin.
