It’s not always your enemies who drop you in the manure…

…As one hapless supporter of RESCUE (a pompous, archaeological charity) recently discovered.

Owing to a serious editorial blunder that subsequently attracted fierce condemnation, RESCUE’s Facebook Page editor, Chris Cumberpatch, has rightly and (honourably) fallen on his sword :

“In view of the criticism that recent posts have attracted I am resigning my editorship of this page and will take no further part in RESCUE’s activities. My opposition to metal detecting remains firm…”

One of my archaeological contacts reckons an unpalatable truth is slowly dawning on RESCUE; that far from being movers and shakers in the heritage world, it has the potency of a eunuch.

It seems too, that it’s having difficulty in coming to terms with the fact that it doesn’t hold a monopoly of who can delve into the heritage to the exclusion of all others.
