Nasty little area. New a Yank anthropologist who was working in S.E asia just prior to the Vietnam war. His project was studying local trade networks between villages, unfortunately one ot the trade goods was assault rifles. He wasn't aware that his lovely partner (also an anthropologist) was moon lighting and supplying intel to the CIA. Work up one morning to find that the Mrs has shot through and every male in the village had been taken to a field and executed.

But is this not a fairly common occurence at British Universities or is that an archaeological urban myth?.

Know of at least 4 archies who claim to have been approached by 'friend' of the vice chancellor who worked in some position for the Ministry of Supply and one former colleague who amost managed to get onto the US space programme in the late 60's/early 70's by the same means (or was it the LSD experimentation programme?) and one whole unit who fronted up a NATO diversionary tactic during an exercise on Dartmoor one summer. Anyway seems to be a common tale recounted over the potwashing bowl....

I'd heard that Dr Max Mallowans wife, Agatha Christie used to gather intelligence on Arab nationalists in Iraq during his excavations at Nimrud in the thirties.
