How many archaeologists would be prepaired to own up to the fact that they
may have one or several artifacts or other items maybe even collections of
items. If this is the situation how have they obtained then? I expect the stock
reply to be that these items are being held for research.
Many artifacts and coins are currently disclaimed by the crown , I would
prefere that these items were purchased by British people who love there heritage
rather than see it go to the USA or JAPAN or elsewhere
At the very least these items will remain in this country, loved and
for the nation in due course.
