First Watching Brief Nerves
#41
if curators are just rubber stamping WSIs' then they need to improve fast - it is not acceptable to propose that commercial organisations start setting research agendas or dictating what kinds of work or standards need to be achieved

Be warned that you should get yourself really familiar with human bone, often in bits and frequently very poorly preserved, in a lot of smaller watching briefs (small servive trenches, test pits and the like) human burials can be very difficult to recognize and it always looks bad when the animal bone specialist sends sit all back with an abusive note, or you go back to area excavate the site and the guy's legs are missing....a lot of babies seem to get excavated as dogs, rabbits.....or just don't get recorded at all on the same basis Sad

If you work with the same curators a lot you usually know roughly what they're going to want under any given set of circumstances, so more a case of anticipating the end result and saving everyone a lot of time and money?
