Website does really say much does it

It's good that 'Archaeological consultation is available' but why should it really just pay and loot everyone happy.

Total destruction!!!
I also know some will compare this also to metal detecting rallies... but I think there is a difference.
But there again... I'm like Everton supporter in The "Cop" end here! Wink

Context book?
Level/TST?
Any sort of recording apart from "look ma, I found some pointy-stone" photos? Not that I could see in the photos on the pages.

Its like a return to antiquarianism - a nice day out followed by a little light digging and souvenirs to go home with, although thats probably an injustice to antiquarians.

Does anyone know what the ad means by 'evaluated by archaeologists'? Who are these people ans why are they involved in this? The ad is very sparse on detail, so can anyone divulge more before my head explodes!
