Good luck. I don't know about "breaking issues", but "festering wounds" would be to address the ethical issues of British archaeologists in "partnership" with so-called "Metal detecting" in the UK. This very much clouds the issue over artefact collecting in the UK.

The lecture was very interesting and an eye opener. There are still a lot of issues and problems about looting of artefacts. Its good that this is been brought to attention.

It was a great lecture and I learned immensely more about what you've blogged about with such vigor. It was a pleasure meeting you!
