  World War One trenches

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone knows of any groups that work in france/belgium/holland on the WW1 trench sites. My partner and i would love any opportunity to carry out some work in this field and any information that anyone could give would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

Is it me or has The Digger, since the change in editor, become far too po-faced and serious? What happened to the Fantasy Unit League and why does blatantly left-wing polemic now dominate? I don't think the readership of The Digger have a problem with discussing serious issues but does it have to be presented as though it was written by a particularly humourless member of the SWP.

  Pay Scales
Posted by: BoltonSquanderer - 17th May 2004, 11:00 PM - Forum: The Site Hut - Replies (26)

4HB, I share your concerns about archaeologists working for minimum wage but increasing the trainee rate substantially above current levels would force an increase to all pay scales, something that commercial archaeology companies won't agree to. It was only in 2000 that a company in the SE was paying trainees ?150 pw so ?200 pw does represent real progress.

I don't entirely buy the idea that archaeologists should expect parity with other graduate professions, who should new entrants into field archaeology claim parity with? If graduates are intelligent enough to obtain a degree then surely they should have had the sense to check out pay scales and career progression before they got into the job.

I'm all in favour of increased pay and better conditions but trying to claim too much will only set back the progress which has been made in recent years.

  Polluter Pays
Posted by: BAJR Host - 15th May 2004, 02:38 AM - Forum: The Site Hut - Replies (23)

In a recent discussion with a... 'natioanl archaeology insitution' shall we say that the concept of the developer being liable for all expences was seen as the norm... this seems to completely forget the fact that the developer can then only see archaeology as a trap and a tax....

Should there be more financial help for

a. the small developer that finds a significant site (I kno... define significant!!)

b. a large developer who is shelling out 6 figure sums to jump through another planning hoop with little material benefit to them?

Nobody should take moral high ground here... but perhaps a debate is i order.

Just thought I'd say I like the new site and the fact that you can do your CV yourself. The only think I would say is that I preferred being able to see the maps beside the jobs, it made it easier to skim down the list and pick out the right area before looking at the jobs!
