Funding, subsidies and all that!
#11
Hello folks been deranged watching builders briefs go wedgy when observed that they had no insurance- better get invoicing before they disappear, if they haven’t already, or no supper for the babbies.-the joys of the dark side

“funding for archaeology is very explicitly not a subsidy” I think that it explicitly very is-including both ways that OneMa suggests and all the others: academic .... And in developer funded it is a 100%er and its impossible to “do” archaeology without subsidy unless you are extremely wealthy-and by do I mean dig. For instance I know the secret of rig and frig (take note hosty) but I have yet to see an opportunity (heritage manage?) to make my fortune from it-dilemma do I tell for the good of the people (and bored uninterested diggers) or do I keep it to myself on the chance it might lead to fortune (which reminds- get lotto for tonite)-

perversity lies where subsidy is suggesting that landowners are protecting archaeology when we do not know if it is there. I think that anywhere a landowner (and the government as their backers) applies for funding to take a field out of farming, on the grounds that they are protecting archaeology, that evaluation trenches are undertaken to prove the extents of the archaeological potential. I think that if the cosmic survey has shown that even scheduled monuments have disappeared in the last ten years that any other nmp crop marks are more than likely to have gone. I call on the RDS or any other agency of pension grabbers to come out with where and what they are paying for “archaeology” to be protected so that we can mull over what we are getting for our buck (I suggest that it will be pathetic amount which allows them claim to use the word archaeology). And then archaeologist want some (more than half) of that buck to undertake the evaluations (trench)- oh and yearly checks on the status. And it should be done by independent self-employed people (no chance that they will be IFA members then) who will offer the cheapest price and not by some conflict of interest pension grabbers.

Then when they get a “grant” it has to be for some 99 year lease type thing and they have to give the deeds to the land to the first immigrant that they meet so that it can be seen that all this preservation of our traditional and vernacular is not reactionary politics at work which is what anything building restoration, -churches-, and “landscape” orientated is.

If-you can maintain an independence -a sense of self when all around is subsidy –then more punishments to come
