I had a suspicion that this is what was going to happen all along. On Sunday night,
January 25, the St. Louis officers and board of directors, having earlier received a vote of support from their members, decided to resign effective as of January26, 2015, in
order to allow AIA-STL to continue its association with the national
organization by meeting the requirements set
forth by the AIA Council at the 2015 Annual Meetings. Prior to their resignation, the officers and board picked their
replacement interim officers and board.
British archaeologist living and working in Warsaw, Poland. Since the early 1990s (or even longer) a primary interest has been research on artefact hunting and collecting and the market in portable antiquities in the international context and their effect on the archaeological record.
"coiney" - a term I use for private collector of dug up ancient coins, particularly a member of the Moneta-L forum or the ACCG
"heap-of-artefacts-on-a-table-collecting" the term rather speaks for itself, an accumulation of loose artefacts with no attempt to link each item with documented origins. Most often used to refer to metal detectorists (ice-cream tubs-full) and ancient coin collectors (Roman coins sold in aggregated bulk lots)
"tekkie" - metal detectorist/metal detecting (a form of artefact hunting)
