The Shakespeare, Durham City. Michael Shanks snr., September 2008

A favorite haunt of mine for over 30 years. Little changed.

It was in this room in 1981 that I asked archaeologist Colin Haselgrove if he thought he could handle me doing doctoral research with him - I had abandoned archaeology out of frustration, after my undergraduate days at Cambridge.

I eventually went back to Peterhouse, Cambridge in 1989.
