Is that a typo or is the actual title of one of the sessions 'The Archaeology of Love David Jennings'? Its apparently being given by Oxford Archaeology, does that mean all of the staff? I have an image of well ordered troops marching by holding his image on high, perhaps with missile carriers following on behind, fireworks, marching bands etc. I know OA are regarded by many as trying to take over the world, I didn't realise it had been raised to a Chairman Mao-style level of devotion to the great leader!! :o)
What have you got against our beloved leader? Your name will be taken down and you will suffer the consequences! :o)
I haven't got anything against him - please don't send in the tanks!! Smile

how could you not Smile
Yes, that's a typo. I'll go and fix it in the post on the IfA group.
aw... I like it the first way Smile
I think the Archaeology of Love will be a popular theme (whether it involves David Jennings or not). The most popular post by far on my blog is this, it was posted up about 2 years ago when they were found in Mantua near Verona and still gets quite a lot of hits:
Entitled Neolithic couple in Eternal Embrace.
