Hyperbole or a realistic view of the future?
Gander Wrote:The current state of archaeology, with its low wages and subsequent understaffing, will, with the coming HS2 project, lead to a complete collapse of the industry as the construction companies justifiably ignore the requirements of heritage in the planning process, due to an inability by the industry to provide an adequate level of service. Discuss.

Another point of view is that it will strengthen the industry but weaken the standards of archaeology.
There is also the possibility that it could see the demise of some, possibly many smaller to medium sized companies and the rapid growth of others, depending on how well they can adjust to the demands.
I reserve the right to change my mind. It's called learning.
