The Rose Playhouse Archaeological Argument

), and a shorter version ( v=8waZtFtEUVc ).
I have no idea who they are from, though R.Q. Miller seems to be a local Southwark resident.
I worked on the Rose site from day one and did all the machine watching, and I remember the night of the vigil quiet well, we the archaeologists beat Pike from Dad's Army at table football.

Dafydd Davies.

    Hello Dafydd

    I was indeed a local resident at the time of the discovery of the Rose in 1989. I shot the footage using a VHS recorder that I had to hand at the time. I edited this in 2013 and Save the Rose was premiered at the Rose Playhouse in February 2014. You can read more on my blog at
