Tom Greeves
Cultural environmentalist Tom Greeves joined the Cornwall Archaeological Society in 1970 when studying European Prehistory at Edinburgh University. He dug with Roger Mercer at Carn Brea 1970-1973 and was co-director of the excavation of Colliford Tin Mill 1979-1980. He was archaeologist for Dartmoor National Park 1979-1985. His specialist research interests are on tin working from prehistory to the present day. He now lives in Penzance.

Why now?
The Isles of Scilly have a wonderfully rich human story derived from a wide range of documentation and archaeological survey and excavation. Since 1994 Tom, with his wife Elisabeth, has explored the Isles of Scilly informally and taken numerous groups to the islands. This talk will present some of their discoveries and observations, ranging from prehistory to the present day.
