A book about archaeological finds in Hertfordshire has been published in honour of a dedicated Welwyn enthusiast who saved important Roman remains in the village.
Archaeology in Hertfordshire: Recent Research, is subtitled A Festschrift for Tony Rook, in recognition of the 83-year-old villager who saved the Welwyn Roman Baths from destruction in the late 1960s.
The book, launched at a Welwyn Archaeological Society party at the preserved baths on Friday,
is based on a conference marking Mr Rook’s 80th birthday three years ago.
