Funding, subsidies and all that!
#3
so gently it was but a stroke from the back of my hand... and some people pay for that sort of thing Wink

A seriously interesting concept of who subsidisies archaeology...

Are 'we' a business... earning profits, making cash.. expanding.. etc... or are we a service... rpoviding opportunities and information for the greater good, and therefore should be supported from a general fund/tax (or through developer funding).

Handouts to repair private property just because it's old!! - however... why not is some cases... if you are willing to put in a serious percentage as well.. you should be helped/encouraged to restore, consolidate etc.... I recently replaced the entire roof of my 180 year old school... at quite a large cost... (Sad) but I used traditional techniques and the best material - lead code 9 flashing, reclaimed scotish slates, etc etc.. copper nails... becasue I wanted that roof to last another 200 years... rather than just doing it as cheaply as possible... I needed help ... otherwise I would have had to do it cheaply... and the roof would need replaced in 50 years.. ............ So I say... help people who are willing to put in the effort to preserve decent structures
