I have been reading the various posts related to Bonekickers over the last
week or so and having missed the first episode I saw the second on
Tuesday. The majority of posts have been overwhelmingly negative but the
few positive posts relate to the benefit archaeology may receive through
Having seen the last show and considering two of the main characters are
black, should Bonekickers prove to be an enduring success will it have an
impact on the number of ethnic minority students taking up archaeology?
Despite the many complaints the program has received, if it can achieve
this when other programs have seemingly failed (and please correct me if I
am wrong in this assumption as I rarely watch television but have not
noticed a dramatic increase in people from ethnic backgrounds entering
archaeology) surely that can only be a good thing despite the many
complaints that people have?
p.s. sorry if this has already been seen and read - having email issues
