About a month and half ago I was at the IfA conference in Glasgow. There I helped run a session on research and community/public archaeology. It was an amazing session and we had about 90 people attended. As I tend to do at conferences these days, I videoed the presentations and did some editing. So if you missed the session you can see the videos here. In no particular order (basically, the order in which Youtube moved from video to video) here are the videos of the presentations-
