Professor T.G.E. (Terence) Powell

February 8, 2016

Dear HARN members, we’ve had another request for information. James Eogan of TII is looking for information about Terence Powell. James writes:

I am writing in the hope that members of the History of Archaeology Research Network, might  be able to assist me in getting some information on T.G.E. (Terence)  Powell (1916 – 1975) who took the Cambridge Tripos in 1937 and was awarded an MA in 1940. He was a student at Jesus College. He was appointed senior lecturer in Prehistoric Archaeology in the University of Liverpool in 1948 and ended his career there as professor.

 My interest stems from  the fact that I am based in county Waterford, Ireland. Powell  carried out fieldwork, including excavating two megalithic tombs, in   the county in the late 1930s. Powell is therefore one of the  county’s archaeological ‘pioneers’ I am gathering information on him and his work here.

 Any information on Powell’s Irish excavations that members of the Network might have would be gratefully received. In particular I am hoping to source photograph of him  in the late ‘30s during his Cambridge (and Waterford) years, he would have been a contemporary of  Glyn Daniel and Shephard Frere among others.

If you can help James that would be wonderful, he can be contacted at james dot eogan at tii dot ie – just take out the spaces and replace the dots etc. Why am I telling you this? You know what to do!

Thank you, Julia
