New Year Teaser

Are we going to get a clue to where this excavation/field survey is now???
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, Merlot in one hand, Cigar in the other; body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!

You jest! 'dig up and weigh in for scrap' would be more common and definitely more sensible. (Giving a share of the proceeds to the landowner of course Wink )

Never seen it yet on any job I've done with detectorists, the scrap always gets dumped on the field edge if nearby, or they empty their pockets out wherever they're parked at the end of the day and chuck it in the hedge - maybe Yorkshiremen aren't as canny as is usually made out? (seen same in several other counties too)

....hope every archaeologist in South Yorkshire was watching Silent Witness last night, you got a right good slagging off! Get those letters of complaint off to the BBC (unless you actually '...are all back-stabbing *****s....' of course) :face-approve:

You might think that; I couldn't possibly comment.
