I’m left with the profound sense that archaeology is still only really being used to illustrate the history. [...] This isn’t archaeology for me. It’s history with trinkets.
I’m left with the profound sense that archaeology is still only really being used to illustrate the history. So, because I began my archaeological career after 1989, I’m disappointed. This isn’t archaeology for me. It’s history with trinkets. - See more at: http://www.historytoday.com/rachel-pope/celts-blood-iron-and-sacrifice#sthash.ndVp0bDS.dpuf

Hi Paul,

This is not on topic but I wasn't sure how else to send you this link. I just wanted to pass on a post that makes for well, some kind of reading... I'll let you decide the various talking points that jump out of this posting. The irony of the last graphic at the end writes it's own blog headline. https://stoutstandards.wordpress.com/2015/10/06/knock-knock-whos-there/

No, it is not at all on topic.

Mr Stout has little to write about except his aches and pains and to fill space in his vacant life thinks it is acceptable to publish foul-mouthed and libellous comments about "Warsaw Wally". We may safely leave him and his vulgar, bellicose and ignorant sidekick to fester in their own bitterness and self-pity.
