This is what the Guardian reported yesterday:
"Yesterday in Parliament
Wednesday March 14, 2001
Archaeologists. A group of them marched on parliament in an event so unusual that historians
could not remember a precedent. Led by Dai Morgan Evans, secretary of the Society of Antiquaries,
they urged the government to ensure that sites and monuments records, the bedrock of national
archaeological data and a crucial tool in judging the sensitivity of development sites,
are kept up to date by local authorities. "
