Joe Patrick’s guest post from Saturday garnered a lot of visits and views and I can’t thank him enough. Hopefully I can persuade him to do a few more.
Joe emailed me and suggested I might want to share the following video from the Time Searchers in that it defines their goals and efforts. Enjoy…
HAPPY BASTILLE DAY
Just wanted to say Happy Bastille Day to all my French Friends, especially Michel & Joelle Toque and family. Would love to be there celebrating with you. Have a few for me please…..
HOW WE’RE VIEWED
As if we didn’t already know, this is how we are viewed in the archaeological blogosphere. This comment is from a “supposed” archaeologist’s blog….
“Can archaeologists use metal detectors properly?”
If by “properly” you mean “non-selectively” which is the proper archaeological approach, the answer is yes. As could chimps.
Thank you for so comprehensively demolishing the false claim that detectorists have a special skill that is relevant to archaeological investigations. Their sole skill is in ignoring certain beeps, something no archaeologist will require them to do.
And so it goes in the arrogant and holier than thou world of archaeology.
