Good stuff - I think any award given to someone who can actually engage kids with archaeology is well-deserved. I have tried to get my own two little [fill in adjective of choice] interested for a couple of years now, and its bloody hard work.

I'll break 'em in yet, though - they'll not defeat me [bit of Vincent Price hysterical laughter there].

On that topic, much as I disliked the recent, and now-dead, BBC Robin Hood series, it has helped in bringing castles to life for my little boy (like Robin of Sherwood did for me) - more than I've been able to do. Sobering thought, that!

But they're the ones that'll be paying for your care home. Shouldn't you be encouraging them into something more remunerative? Architecture pays quite well if you get on, and it sounds almost the same.

It could make the difference between a smartly-uniformed sunny-dispositioned manicured twenty-five year old nurse, and a bristle-chinned hairy-knuckled sausage-fingered matron in brogues...

(er... sorry... I now return you to your original topic...)
OOh - nurses[:p]

I'm not bothered about them working as archaeologists - just having an interest - selfish reason really, to stop them whinging when they get dragged round old ruins on holiday.
