 not #timeteam   #archaeology   #archaeologicalgeophysics  Just Watching these guys plot out a grid about 1/8th mile by 1/2 mile and start to geophys with fluxgate gradiometer.
The site is about 24 football fields in size, should I tell em that over the 15 years I've lived here I've found nothing, a few shards of mid to late medieval period pottery or that if I look down on the site from my window I can see the traces of medieval ridge and furrow ploughing?

Holocaust remembrance day ...  #HolocaustMemorialDay
"First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.. ."
Martin Niemöller

UK Channel 5 is still showing WWII Battlefield Recovery (Last year titled Nazi War Diggers) and guess what its still tripe but so tripe its funny (its like Monty Python meets the Goon show for Archeological types. Tonight twisted logic:-
"Look PPsH ammo, but as a great Soviet weapon it was used by the Germans alot so cannot by used to ID the skeleton as German or Soviet"
"Look the buttons off a German bread bag, but as a great piece of German kit it was loved by the Soviets so cannot by used to ID the skeleton as German or Soviet"
"Light Bulb!"
"Look its a German safety razor, the best made at the time, the skeleton must be German QED"
With logic like that I weep ...

Just seen this and staggered.  No geophysics, no archaeology methodology, no Enviromental Archaeology some blokes digging holes and getting results. 20th century conflict archeology it ain't
Channel 5 just NO 
Archaeologists say programme featuring amateurs unearthing war graves on Europe’s eastern front is disrespectful and should be cancelled

Just been reading the evening edition of the Telegraph and Argus Bradfords local newspaper and I saw this about building new student digs. Then I saw were it was slap bang in Bradfords red light area! Only a year ago Swansea University announced research that stated that a massive 5% of UK students turn to prostitution to make cover tuition fees

Also the hunting ground of the Crossbow Cannibal serial killer

Talk about the planners dream going wrong
A LONG delayed scheme to redevelop the site of an historic mill in the centre of Bradford looks to finally have been brought back to life.

Amateur European Military Historian 1932-46
Introduction

Happily Divorced  I worked in Insurance in Leeds doing various roles. My hobby ,no obsession is European Military History 1932-46 and am into Military Archaeology and preservation of sites in the UK which I research and I also wargame Map Sim. by email with similarly minded folk. In the Map Simulations we role play the Generals and ranks above and try and replay Campaigns in the past but with our own personal touch, we also try recreate Campaigns that did not leave the planning table
