Dr. Joe Flatman is the Head of Listing Programmes at Historic England. He was formerly the County Archaeologists of Surrey in southeast England and a Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at University College London. You can follow him on Twitter @joeflatman.  In today's podcast, Joe Flatman speaks with us about the work of Historic England and his deep passion for archaeology. We learned a lot today about the fascinating projects at Historic England. Archaeologists do more than just dig up the past. We connect the present to the past! Find out more from Joe in this interview!   Also, be sure to check out Joe's book, "Archaeology: A Beginner's Guide." Actually, the link below will take you to several of Joe's published books. We aren't sure when this guy sleeps....  Finally, there is no evidence to suggest that Joe is a big fan of James Bond or not but we do discover that he loves gin. In fact, he can't stop talking about gin. Seriously. Joe offers up a fantastic recipe for roast pork with junipers and gin and tonic cake!  Hope you all enjoy it!
