Council for British Archaeology is a good one to approach. You could also try Wiley Science (online) - as they are a good source of all archaeological journals and books etc.

War of the Roses groups?

High there

Does anyone know of any west-midlands War of the Roses groups? Im in Worcester and currently into a degree in British archaeology and heritage; so I think it would be excellent if I could branch out my re-enacting career from 2nd world war into another era.

Cheers
