Jane Ellis-Schön, Project Curator of the Finding Pitt-Rivers Project at The Salisbury Museum, and our friend, is leaving the Museum this week after many years working behind the scenes. She moves on, for the time being at least, to arguably more challenging, interesting and enjoyable things – the baby is due in the new year.

Jane has fulfilled a number of roles here, and the latest one has involved over thirty volunteers who have had the pleasure of working with her, and the Pitt-Rivers archives, over the last few years. Those of us not involved have sometimes been rather envious!

The group of volunteers will be continuing to work on the project until February when the funding ends. Thank you to them, and to all the volunteers who have contributed. Most especially, thank you Jane. Our very best wishes go with you. Not “goodbye” we hope, but “adieu, au revoir”.
