Beg pardee both of youse. I just can't believe what they keep agreeing with each other about. In this country we've been raised on multi-disciplinary archaeology for ever, where the team has geophysicists, engineers, era specialist archaeologists, historians, paleontologists, anthropologists and a band of enthusiastic scrapers who do the donkey work. Of course, our island has some pretty ancient archaeology and masses of it, so the concentration of world class specialists is probably equal to the best in the rest of the world.
Everything is controlled by a government agency and 'scheduled' sites are protected until they can be properly examined.
