    New Discoveries - Not to be Reported on Amateur Sites....??? - Bullshite

    Post  mikki on Sat Oct 23, 2010 5:08 pm

    I am appalled!!! It has been brought to my attention that those with 'powers from above' - one Christine (Kat) Hopwood-Lewis, Regional Historic Environment Advisor,Yorkshire & the Humber region, has requested that any 'new descoveries' of an archaeological nature not be put on these amateur sort of sites. affraid Whether it be the Megalithic Portal, The Northern Antiquarian, or other good "amateur" websites. Who the hell does she think she is!? Evil or Very Mad

    How insulting to all the fanatic antiquarians that have a real passion for seeking out these ancient remains. How dare she insult the nature of these sites?, not to mention the many hours in getting these sites up-and-running with the wealth of detailed, researched information that's free to the world to view. I do belive that this is something you do not get on 'professional' sites.

    I am sure that there are many Qualified Archaeologists out there that use these sites for a source of reference too.

    There have been several times when Finds have been reported to relevent departments only to have a zero response. So what do we do when we do make new discoveries? Do we tell just the closed elite club? or do we continue to provide the information free on-line? After all, there are no Secrecy Acts on locating remains - or are there?

    Mikki,
    Imagine how it feels to be permanately viewed in this arrogant fashion
    That's the fate of the dowser.
    She may be well learned in artifacts and their ASSUMED dates and usages, but She obviously has fallen hook line and sinker into the again assumed elevation of been a so called EXPERT.
    You have no idea of how many of these pompous pillocks I encounter, they treat me as dirt and look at me as a fool .
    They are nothing more than good repeaters, they repeat what they have been told, and expect all to conform to this compounded and compounded repeat, repeat.
    They dig up things and bodies with no comprehension of WHY they were constructed or placed there.
    But they have the state behind them, thus they assume this mantle of superiority.
    Jealousy is evident also, how dare You all go finding relics that the experts have not found, tut, tut.

    Hi Kevin -

    I am getting fed-up with these prawn sandwich & wine elite club attitudes.
    What they are trying to say is - "You find it, we'll record it & take all the credit."
    When these AMATEUR sites (not the forums) report on archaeological remains that have recently been discovered, this makes the PROFESSIONALS feel incompetent. Hence the reason they don't want them highlighted by naturally enthusiastic stone finders.

    Just because some people don't have the letters after their name does that mean they are less competent? I don't think so.

    I look at things from a slightly different perception.
    An Example is -
    Amelia is an Italian lady who moved to England when she was 25 years old.
    Anita is an English lady that has been studing Italian for 3 years.

    They both go for a job teaching Italian - Who is the best person for the Job. The one who has lived it or, the one with the piece of paper?

    I will make sure that anymore finds I make of megalithic remains will be reported, but not to them. They will have to find the information from the ones that deserve it - The Antiquarians.

    Never fear Mikki,

    Professor Rosemary Cramp, Professor Richard Bailey & Doctor Derek Craig (Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture Dept' Arch', Durham) are fans of the site ...

    With such in your favour this RHEA Do Ley Till is a mere 'Tom Thumb'

    However, we must always gaurd against those who may use this site, and there are some, as a ' good place to dig about' ... for their own sad and pitful gain, etc., ...

    Kevin - The 'off' is at me Very Happy
    Pete tells me at least once a week to "off", otherwise I get really upset, feel all neglected Twisted Evil and start stamping my feet, then I throw thing about the house and start shouting at the computer screen etc tongue

    No. Only joking - Pete was stating that there are only two words and one of them is "OFF" for me to tell them, there Prawn Sandwich elite crew.
