Notes

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I thank the organisers of the 2005 Annual Meeting of the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology (ASHAA) for allowing us to stage a session devoted to our work at Casselden Place. I also thank Chuck Orser for supporting the idea of a special issue of the IJHA devoted to recent work on the site. However, my greatest debt is to my editorial assistant Susan Bridekirk whose calm professionalism in the face of the usual ups and downs of projects of this kind made it possible for us to bring our work to a wider audience.
