In November 2010, Andy, Deano, Jane and Patch the dog and Rachael travelled to Cambridge to give a lecture on homeless heritage to the students at the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Cambridge.
We were made very welcome despite the fact Patch farted throughout the lecture! This was Deano’s first time joining the team as a public speaker and he decided, as he busks for a living, to contribute to the session by playing ‘The Boxer’, which he did beautifully.
On the way back to Bristol, we stopped on an old drove road and made a delicious stew. Jane and Deano collected fire wood (in the dark) while Andy constructed a shelter from string and tin foil that was big enough for us all to climb into and stay warm (it was November). Jane was very happy to be back out in the countryside ‘like being back on site’. She danced around the fire and remembered her children fondly and life as a New Age traveller in the UK in the 1980’s.
