We are delighted to announce that the threat of redundancy faced by Heritage and Archaeology staff at the University of Chester has been lifted. The ODA has grown to rely on the advice and goodwill of the department so this news has come as a relief to everyone here in Knighton and along Offa’s Dyke. We gave our support to the campaign to save the staff’s jobs, writing to both the University Vice Chancellor, Professor Eunice Simmons, and Chancellor Gyles Brandreth. Thanks to everyone who took similar action including ODA members across the World.
