    Yes....there are no definite plans at present for chartered membership, merely a chartered institute. However, I see that the IfA conference in Cardiff next spring will have a session devoted to...

    Surely the main point of evaluation is to aid the curator (and ultimately the planning authority) in deciding upon the proposed impact of development on the archaeological resource and thereafter to...

    Obvious follow up question then....does any archaeologist using a drone have the appropriate licence?
  4. Drone Photography - Do you need a CAA licence?

    I have seen a couple of newspaper articles in recent weeks suggesting that users of photography drones should be in possession of a CAA licence (rough cost 1000). Does anyone know the practical...

    Don't quite see how you can be so precise about the price prior to eval. What if the curator decides that works amounting to 100,000 are necessary or that the site is so important that permission is...

    I told a Swedish friend about the 'arkeologibutiken' site selling krafse. She sympathises with Brits who want to buy a krafse, but says it is equally impossible to buy a mattock in Sweden. Maybe...

    I have found a slightly cheaper source....a Swedish archaeology tools website. Will supply a krafse ('Norgehacka' in Swedish) for 512SEK+660SEK postage....no import duties or extra VAT as Sweden is...

    In Norway basic price for a long handled krafser is about 65....postage will be 31 and VAT 13. Import duty (probably about the same as VAT) will also be circa 13....I make that a total of...

    I don't see there is a problem with NATO......Ireland and Swedes are both outside NATO and seem to get on fine....similarly Norway and Iceland are not in the EU but have separately negotiated trade...

    Unlikely....when Ireland separated from the UK there was never a need to show a passport when travelling between North and South or between the Republic and the UK.....similarly the Scandinavian...

    If Scotland is not in the EU or EEA then it is quite likely that the sale of tools from Scotland to the rump of the UK will be subject to import duties......

    No reason, other than it occurred to me that after 30 years of adding clauses to DBA, WSI etc etc regarding the need for a burial licence when/if burials encountered, I have never heard of an...

    Not sure its anything to do with anti slavery laws, but in English law there is 'no property in' nor 'ownership' rights to a dead body. I'm pretty sure this complements Scottish legislation.......in...

    Aside from the legal regulations that govern employment agencies , BAJR would have to consider how to engage staff, almost certainly based upon a test of qualification and experience. He might also...

    It is possible to work overseas and many UK archaeologists do, but (word of warning) it is not always paid work. In some countries and on some projects it is better and/or worse (some projects don't...

    That is interesting. Do you have any details about where these projects are being undertaken and by whom. I would love to know how British prehistory is being 'synthesised' and particularly what data...
