John Howland just forwarded me an update to the Malamute Saloon, and it concerns a recent BBC show featuring Mike Heyworth, Director of the Council for British Archaeology. Apparently Mr. Heyworth has his sights set on putting an end to the very popular rallies that take place on lands owned by the farming community.
I hope you will take a moment to read John’s submission. There a potential parallel to what have become popular events here in the South. To find out more click on the Malamute Saloon link above and scroll down to today’s date.

As I stated in my last update I will continue to post a link here concerning Ken MacIntyre’s battle with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Ken is the son of archaeologist Lisa Hume MacIntyre whom I had the pleasure to debate on two recent Relic Roundup shows. It was shortly this that Ken was diagnosed with Hodgkins. We are all hoping for the best with regards to his recent scans, but whatever the outcome he will still be facing more costly treatment. I hope you will take the time to read about his plight, and donate if you haven’t already.
The American Digger Magazine’s Relic Roundup will be hosting a future show to help out the MacIntyres, and details should be available soon. I am also proud to say that the manufacturers, magazines and related groups are all responding to this cause. Stay tuned….it just might be your chance to own that detector you’ve been lusting after!
In the meantime you can contribute and stay updated on Ken’s situation by clicking on his photo here…
