Andrew Macdonald of Waveney Archaeology and Hidden Commemoration for his enthusiasm, research, pictures and marmalade.

Jess Macdonald and Richard Jeffery for putting lots of pins on maps and making me laugh.

Alison Treacy who has formatted an inhumanly large amount of text very very quickly.

Matthew Champion for sharing his experience with community archaeology projects, his advice, support and encouragement.

Margaret Draycott and Bev Goodwin who are a formidable team.

Geoff Sullivan for his data skills (and feet on the ground) despite allegedly being awful at maths.
