Predictions for 2016...

Recent experience suggests that if you say something worth the effort the consultant insists it gets taken out on the grounds that that wasn't what was being paid for, or might disagree with something they have had printed previously Sad!Sad!

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers

the biggest profiteers in the last 5 years have all been consultants. naming no names but one in particular has successfully siphoned off enough millions to depress the wages of the entire digging industry

No pitch-forks and someone's nicked the latest scythe Sad

- on the up-side, can contribute a very sharp bill-hook and several tarmac-rakes, which have no other obvious archaeological function :face-approve:


Bane of life these days is 'consultants' who either haven't done their job (more than one instance of them not noticing scheduled monuments!) or who actively try to deny the presence of, and then try to obstruct the investigation of, archaeology on behalf of their clients Sad!

I don't suppose you have any evidence to back up that statement... in private I would be willing to look at what you have.

I do however believe it is far easier to look for someone else to blame than to look at ourselves. One of the big things I have managed recently is to look at me first... to look at my actions.... my responsibilities and to challange myself first. Yes indeed I can challenge others... but first... I ask myself the question... and what is my responsibility in this?

I'd be interested to know more too. Unless it's me in which case keep schtum. Smile

But seriously, I must be doing something wrong because I've never found an opportunity to 'syphon off' funds intended for the actual archaeology of any project I've worked on.

A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of Tony Robinson.
