Many thanks John.
Though not an archaeologist myself, obviously archaeology concerns just
about everything that interests me. I didn't arrive at the interest
knowing everything ( I never will, mercifully)and am pleased to learn
more as I go along until I eventually become archaeology.
Anything which helps me unlock and interpret what has gone before, in
the light of what we know today, is welcome.
I didn't arrive
