    FAO PeteG - an Avebury Antiquarian perhaps?

    Post  Paulus on Tue Mar 08, 2011 4:56 pm

    Hi Pete!

    Have you never thought of starting up, for example, The Avebury Antiquarian?*, or a Southern Antiquarian? - or summat along those lines. You & Steve's finds & exploits should get much more coverage mate. The Heritage Action's TMA and other buncha halfwits who allege interest in the area are really only part-timers and other species of fly-by-night participants who don't have the organic realism required of archaeomythic arenas. You could easily get summat really good going on for the region Pete. I know I'm 200 miles away, but I'd certainly help out in whatever way I could. I reckon you'd get a lotta decent feedback once it was up & running.

    Just a thought...

    something is cooking along those lines for later in the year.
    It the past other Avebury forums have been over run with Ufo/crop circle freaks
    or self opinionated activists who aren't working with a full load.
    The NT are slowly taking over more of Avebury as a money making scheme rather than as a convservation/education body.
    NT now do Tours for £30 a head that allow special access to museum exhibits which Should be open to all.

    When the Avebury Book is finished the website won't be far behind.
