Funding, subsidies and all that!
#1
Having been mildly ticked off by Mr Hosty for digressing on the other thread, I put the following proposition.

Unitof1 appears to have a problem with subsidies paid to farmers. It must be pleasant to be in a situation where one is a self funded archaeologist (his/her profile says self employed archaeologist). After all, although farmers get funding through subisdy, effectively archaeology is also massively subsidised - not via direct funding like the SPS but as a result of governments passing legislation and publishing policy advice which effectively forces developers to pay for archaeological work and therefore 'subsidises' our profession. If all archaeological work was funded by voluntary contribution then we would be doing a damned site less as a profession and there would be a lot fewer of us working - with the obvious exception of Unitof1 who is able to employ him/her self.

I will now don my metaphorical kevlar battle bowler and head for my similarly metaphorical slit trench with 18 inches of overhead cover Incominggggg!!!
