Fenland Research Committee: Minute book, and papers of Sir Grahame Clark, Hon. Secretary
Scope and Contents
The Fenland Research Committee was formed on the7th of June 1932 by 'archaeological workers, who sadly felt the lack of essential geological, botanical and zoological knowledge'. Delegates were sent by Cambridge Antiquarian Society (M.C. Burkitt, G. Fowler, T.C. Lethbridge) and the Prehistoric Society of East Anglia (Reid Moir and J.G.D. Clark), and they and several others formed the first committee. Sir Albert.C. Seward was President, J. Grahame D. Clark, secretary. The material is either enclosed in the minute book itself or in an envelope that is attached to the book. Some attempt has been made to order the letters into their appropriate sections.
