Fine but cold. Left on 11.10 for
Went to the , where all is
still in confusion. Went to the Archaeology
Museum Mill Lane rooms to
hear Sir Cyril Fox talk on the wonderful finds in Llyn Cenig, Yuys Fon, which
he did very well indeed. The amount of
material recovered is amazing, and the condition of the iron work is so good
that it is almost impossible to realise its true age. Afterwards had the chance to talk to him for
a few minutes about the slave chains in the Mithraeum, of which he had no note
or record. He seemed very well and full
of energy. Did not like to ask after
Iorwerth Peate, in view of what had happened at Am. Gen. in these recent years. Dr Iorwerth Peate, a Curator at the National Museum of Wales had been dismissed from his post by Sir Cyril Fox for registering as a conscientious objector but was reinstated by the Museum's Board of Governors.
Left Cambridge on the 5.12, got to
Colchester just after 7.30. Cycled out by way of Boxted to Dedham. Great activity on the aerodrome. Full moon tonight. Sisson made me very welcome, had supper and
went to bed at 11, after the most delightful chatter.
