Excavation archives as case studies
#27
Don’t know Hamish I am only recently coming up to speed on this and charges, I am mostly stuck in principles. <BAJR Edit - I sure unintended, but is suggesting unethical practice) [B]BAJR Edit >[/B] A significant amount of the cost price now is being generated by HER fees, brief and planning discharge fees. On a small watching brief these fees can be anywhere between a third and a half of the potential cost price and that's before I have bagged any cbm.

I think Dino the news thing was this http://www.museumsassociation.org/museum...for-access

Somebody in the comments has picked up on best to throw mud by being anonymous.

Or the news thing might have been this
http://www.museumsassociation.org/commen...y-archives
which refers to a 2012 report which can only say archaeology if it brands it commercial when it patently isn't.

Which seems to have been responded to by this magnificent group http://www.museumsassociation.org/museum...-unethical

Nice use of "not unethical". Now I cant say that I know if a museum archaeologist does their own field work so I don’t know how they would work out student assessing charges that I should consider for pdurdin. I don’t imagine that I am local as I am not even local to my museum.

Also access is a bit tricky as I have to get the mower out of the way:

Quote:Museum store must have cost a fortune [it's huge] and is run commercially to the extent that it has to pay for itself.
well if its commercial to that extent it bound to have cost a fortune. Wonder if there was a business plan and which of the big four banks funded it? Let us guess.....
.....nature was dead and the past does not exist
