I want to thank Butch Holcombe of American Digger magazine, Jeff Lubbert, co-host of their Relic Roundup show, and archaeologist Lisa Hume MacIntyre for a fun couple of hours. The two shows were informative and a step forward in what has been an ongoing battle within our two communities. Thank you also to all who tuned in, called in, sharing your thoughts and opinions. If only interactions like this could take place on a larger scale and on a regular basis…..
Lisa MacIntyre is a breath of fresh air as archaeologists go in that she makes an attempt to understand our take on things, and she offers hope that newer archaeological grads will be similiar in their thought process. At least lets hope so.
So what next? Where do we go from here? Will there be more discussions between the two factions? Who will take the iniative to make it happen? I have no answers. Hopefully someone does….
THE CBA’S ATTEMPT TO CONTROL THE TEKKIE
John Howland added an update to the Malamute Saloon, and I hope you will take a moment or two to read it. As you know John’s contributions usually relate to what’s happening in the UK and today’s is rather thought provoking. Sure to raise a few hackles amongst the trolls. Then again it doesn’t take much…..

WALLY IN WARSAW
I have had a few emails from friends asking more about this individual and I shared with them my past dealings. I would urge you all not to respond to his posts. He is baiting you into responding, and will only post your comment after he has crafted a nasty follow-up. His life is spent trolling the internet, looking for anything and everything he can find to cast a shadow on our pastime.
Warsaw Wally also claims not to be interested in what we do here in the States, but always finds a way to say something insulting about our great country. Then again he claims to be a British archaeologist (though no one can find any credentials) living in Poland. Hmmm..? I can also share instances where those in his own community have barred him on their forums.
So proceed with caution and be aware of his motives. He’s one sorry and sad SOB.
