"Watch this space" could be have been the words to describe the setting of the Essex Society for Archaeology and History's Annual General Meeting last Saturday (13 June 2015). Members gathered in the newly extended Albert Sloman Library at the University of Essex for the first public meeting held there. In autumn 2015 the Society’s own library will relocate to this new dedicated space on the first floor. Members sat in the area to be fitted out as a Reading Room and saw the room behind glass panels which would house the collection of books amassed over the Society's 163 year history. It is considered to be one of the most important archaeological libraries in the region.
