UK "Citizen Aerial Archaeology"

The British Museum has called metal detecting (artefact collecting) "citizen archaeology". Here therefore is one of their citizens doing some "citizen aerial archaeology". The Museum's "Learning, Audiences and Volunteer Department" and Press Office have still to get back to us with the Museum's definition of archaeology. Could it be that this research institution uses terms in a way which they cannot then explain to the public that pay for their nice cosy Bloomsbury ivory tower offices? It looks like it.
