Over on the other side of the pond, I gotta say given the climate we have been in, oddly enough at least for certain sectors of the government, Congress has approved increases in the budget. For those of us in the Bureau of Land Management, a much maligned agency if there ever was one, Congress went along with nearly a 10% budget increase across the board (I say nearly since we only got a 1% salary increase). But yes, archaeology got an increase of nearly 10%.

Assumption there will be an exit of Greece and that the member countries
will not continue providing their legally-binding contributions. The EU
has already tightened its belts without a corresponding large hit to
science funding. Meantime, the UK government has shown utter disdain to
archaeology. In a nutshell, you have NOT shown that archaeology (and
indeed the wider sciences) would not be financially hit by a Brexit. It
is the Leavers who are proposing a change so it is incumbent upon YOU to
show the evidence. You have singularly failed to do so.
