A Bit of British 'Archaeological Fun' from the CBA

More jolly dumbdown guessing games from British archaeology:
ArchaeologyUK (that's the Council for British Archaeology) 6:10 PM · 2 kwi 2021·
[emoticon] We will be making an #announcement at 5pm tomorrow! [emoticon] Can you guess what it's about? [emoticon] [emoticon]

Are you at last going to condemn the present form of Collection-Driven Exploitation of the Archaeological Record as unsustainable, damaging, indefensible and incompatible with promoting archaeological values, like RESCUE did? If not, why not?

Relic collecting is self-evidently no more "archaeology for all" than big game hunting is "ecology for all". It's just collecting and commodification of artefacts but above all wrecking the surviving bits of the archaeological record. No?
Do you reckon I got it right?

With 99,400 followers on Twitter alone, how can the CBA use social media to promote archaeological values and approach in the public space? Serious question addressed to an organization that has "archaeology for all" as its brand.
