County Archaeologists in commercial units
#21
From Troll:
Quote:quote:And indeed, the closeness of some consultancies to the local curator.Its not unusual for a curator to turn a blind eye to the antics of often-used consultancies in their catchment areas.
I would be very interested to see any evidence for this statement. It certainly does not match my experience.
What do you mean by 'often used'? Generally, the curators do not 'use' consultants much - commercial clients do. Curators have no interest in particular consultancies, whereas they often do in particular units.
Some curators may have more faith in some consultants than others, on the basis of their past experience of good/bad work. That variation in their faith may affect how closely they check what the consultant does. That does not mean the same as 'turning a blind eye'.
