    Why stop at Latin? Lets also expunge our archaeological dictionary of French, German, Scandinavian, Welsh, Irish, Scots, Greek, Arabic and Persian at the same time.....Ug ug uf ug uu ug......@&^..

    Think so...the layer above cannot be earlier than the dated pottery from the layer below (TAQ) and the layer below cannot be later than the dated pottery from the layer above (TPQ)...

    I have done some further research...I am not entirely convinced. It seems to be a system that appeals to the individual rather than corporate or group ethos.....stressing the individual rather than...

    Except that the pot in question doesn't date the layer in which it is contained. It provides the TPQ for the layer below and the TAQ for the layer above. Very important distinction.....

    Yeah I found that article, but maybe I am stupid I didn't understand a word...

    I guess I could ask my friend Mallory, but I don't want to appear more stupid than I am. Can anyone tell me what co-creation is all about?

    Very good questions Beamo.....

    In England at least, there are a series of regional research strategies as well as an English Heritage National Heritage Protection Plan......this could be considered as a research agenda for all...

    I have no idea how Scottish archaeology will be organized after independence, but note that other 'newly' independent nations have often made heritage and cultural legislation one of their first...

    But the IfA did not create the half-arsed hierarchy that exists in UK archaeology. That was largely the invention of archaeologists as a whole, for which we all ought to take our share of the blame...

    There are plenty of folk who express a preference just to work on site (I would guess carrying out all site tasks and not just digging holes) and they provide a valuable resource...but it is a fact...
  12. ... Not sure if you are the only one....but you...

    ... Not sure if you are the only one....but you misunderstand the IfA. There are no 'executive IfA figures' able to create/amend standards off their own back. All standards are subject to...

    Don't quite see how the IfA get dragged into this. From its inception the IfA has recognized 'experience' as a valid criteria for accredited membership. It is not and never has been an exclusively...

    There is nothing to stop anyone having aspirations to work with archaeological material/data. Whether they do that as a paid job is another matter, but in a sense it is irrelevant. Access is...
  15. No....no....and er....no!!

    No....no....and er....no!!

    I have no issue with uiniversity education at all. I am a student at the University of Birmingham right now. My point (and I think one echoed by David over the years) is that archaeology as a...

    Err... if we accept that archaeology is a broad church, then the answer is NO. Professional practice covers a wide ranging agenda above and beyond academic qualification alone
  18. Really don't understand what you are referring to...

    Really don't understand what you are referring to here. Membership criteria for the IfA covers both applicants with formal academic qualifications as well as applicants with experiential...

    We should stop this thread now- the last few comments have been both inaccurate in its assumption and unfair in its conception....

    My impression is that there are plenty of experienced people who would return to the fold if offered the right wage and a reasonable length of contract. So it seems to me that solving the skills...

    Have I missed something here? Are you saying that HS2 will not be tendered? Where did that information come from? I thought all projects in the EU over a certain value had to be tendered...
  22. I am not so sure that HS2 will create many new...

    I am not so sure that HS2 will create many new jobs in archaeology. What it is more likely is that it will concentrate work for a while and generate a lot of short term contracts. Also not sure how...

    Wax you are absolutely right....perfect. Unlike the 'Archaeologist Formerly Known As', who doesn't seem to understand archaeological stratigraphy at all...

    You are absolutely right Crocodile, but it is as pointless trying to explain technical archaeology to the 'Archaeologist Formerly Known As', as it was trying to explain it to his previous...
