Continuing the trend for downgrading archaeology, Tees Archaeology is being cut from five-and-a-half posts to three. While this does mean that a service will continue, it represents another example of what's becoming a worrying pattern of depressing capacity in local authority curatorial services. Although I know some people on this site won't agree (I'm looking at you, Unit of 1!), the continued reduction in staff advising councils on archaeological matters will surely have a knock-on impact on the amount of work for commercial contractors through a reduction in conditions on planning consents.

Another sadly depressing moment of madness resulting from the desperate measures of the power crazed ConDem Gvt. It's going to get worse yet folks!
When in question... duck?
