Not-so-Free Archaeology
#1
Word has reached me that to carry out any archaeological, or even historical research in Liverpool and Merseyside is going to cost an arm and a leg!

The re-opened Merseyside HER http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/mol/c...nt-record/ is now charging a daily rate for access of £500 (+VAT) with a minimum consultation time of half a day, meaning that at the bare minimum you'll be paying £250+VAT to look at any of the HER data.

Surprise, surprise they have no online resources to look at, and photocopying will cost 10p per page.

Nice to see that a public service is now out of reach of most of the public, and adds a massive cost on to DBA's.
