Other, more local societies which I have addressed include the Aldeburgh and District Local History Society, the Binham Local History Group, the Blakeney Area Historical Society, the Docking Heritage Group, the East Dorset Antiquarian Society, the Hunstanton Civic Society, the Paston Heritage Society, the South Elmham and District Local History Group and the Wymondham Heritage Society.

This is just a note of thanks for the splendid presentation you gave on Wednesday. I’m sure you felt the warm appreciation and many have since told me how much they enjoyed it – and others were sorry they missed it!
Dr Charles Oxley, The New Buckenham Society

Just to say thank you again for last night, your excellent talk, and analysis. Much appreciated. The audience feedback has been incredibly positive. I was of course over the moon with the attendance.
Aldeburgh and District Local History Society

Thanks so much for your fabulous talk and bringing everything together so expertly – you did a fantastic job of assimilating and summarising the information on Barber’s Point and putting it into a wider historical and regional setting.
Jezz Meredith, Suffolk Archaeology

Thank you so much for a terrific lecture on Saturday. So many people came up to me afterwards, and have written since, to say how interesting they found it and how they (like me) wished it could have been longer. You’re such a gifted lecturer! The topic was fascinating, the material clearly and engagingly presented, and the results stimulating. It was just wonderful – thank you very much.
Sue Oosthuizen, Institute of Continuing Education University of Cambridge

One of the best talks I’ve ever heard!

Thank you for your splendid contribution to the success of the recent study day at Bury. The unanimous response to the comment cards received so far from the audience suggest that my remarks are well-justified.

Thank you for the superb lecture you gave at our Fursey Celebration. The content of your lecture informed us, and your presentation held our attention throughout.
The Fursey Pilgrims

It was very good of you to take the time and trouble to prepare for a session that went down especially well with the assembled audience, and we are most grateful to you.
PCC St Mary the Virgin, Strethall, Saffron Walden

Many thanks for the very interesting talk and presentation you gave us the other night. Judging by the silence and lack of movement from the members, I can honestly say they all enjoyed it. I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback.
East Norfolk Metal Detecting Society

His depth of knowledge was clearly huge and his enthusiasm catching. The audience had a most entertaining and enlightening evening.
Blakeney Area Historical Society

Rik is an excellent speaker and his content was very informative and well delivered.

An interesting and absorbing speaker – thanks to Rik for a fascinating day.
Wuffing Education Student

Thank you so much for speaking at our Historical Society’s meeting last night. It was one of the very best talks we have had, and held everyone’s interest. There were many compliments afterwards.
Happisburgh Historical Society

The number of attendees was certainly testament to your reputation as, not only, a good speaker but on a subject that clearly fascinates many of us!
Friends of Langham Dome

At the latest meeting the society was entertained by Dr Richard Hoggett with his lecture on the East Anglian conversion. The speaker showed both a love and a mastery of his subject, and members were engrossed listening to his far-ranging talk.
West Norfolk and King’s Lynn Archaeological Society

It is difficult to identify a highpoint as the whole day was so enjoyable. I love Rik’s fluency and knowledge – linking things you knew with loads you didn’t or hadn’t considered.
Wuffing Education Student

So many things we take for granted – even ignore really – were brought to life by Dr Hoggett.
King’s Lynn Library Audience Feedback

Richard is an excellent communicator who stimulates reaction, discussion and further research on the part of students.
Trefor Jones

Just wanted to thank you, on behalf of the Archaeology Group, for such an interesting and informative lecture which had so many people saying how good you were. The slides themselves were very clear, and showed the two cloisonne crosses so well.
