Question for Tony Robinson

"My son Spike loves nature, and wants to become an ornithologist. Any advice? Is a pair of bird-nesting climbing boots a good present?"
Tony's answer,
tell him to join an ornithology club and, yes, the boots are a good idea but only if he does not use them "wantonly". Any eggs he pockets should be taken along to the local ornithologists who will make a record of them. Then it's OK.


What I want to know is why after millions and millions of pounds thrown at "archaeological outreach to the British public" which has lasted twenty years - you get a dumbass question like that. IS artefact hunting and collecting archaeology? No. No more than nesting and bird egg collecting is ornithology. We'll never get those twenty years back, PAS.
