Late SOAG Honorary Members

The following are former SOAG Honorary members, now deceased.

Pat Preece,
former SOAG chairman
Pat, joined SOAG in the mid seventies, served on the committee for nearly 30 years and was for five years its chairman. But her major contribution to SOAG has been through her research. For nearly 40 years, Pat investigated the history of South Oxfordshire using as her primary sources the landscape itself, the memories of local people, and historical maps and documents, and was responsible for establishing Landscape Archaeology as an essential and integral part of field research in SOAG.
Margaret Westwood,
former SOAG committee member

Margaret joined SOAG in the early 1980s and took part in all the key excavations of that period including the original work with Oxford Archeology that lead to SOAG's long term project at the Roman Villa. But perhaps Margaret’s most important contribution to SOAG has been her 12 years as Hon Secretary from the early 1980s to the mid 1990s, and after stepping down from this role, continuing to help organise tea and coffee at lectures for several years. 
Robin Cloke
former landowner, Roman Villa Site

Ever since SOAG's excavation of the Roman Villa commenced on his land in the early 1990s Robin was an excellent host, generously allowing SOAG the use of his utilities, providing space for storage, and land for parking. Without this practical support, not to mention Robin's regular good humoured welcome, SOAG's longest running project would not have been be the success that it has.
