    If there are any groups ,clubs ,associations etc in the UK that specialise in military archaeology ,you know the sort of thing they organise meets and that sort of thing ? found plenty of groups on the net that are interested in the older history (romans etc) but nothing to do with the battlefields.

    any ideas?

    I was thinking that the other day Jay. I couldn't find one either. How about this for an idea.................we form a group HERE!

    I bet if we ask Dimas nicely we could have a little sub-forum. We could have a regular newsletter, discussions on stuff and organise big relic hunts. I don't mind doing the newsletter and organising stuff. What do you think ? Is anyone else interested ?

    Are we talking about digging / metal detecting or specific Battlefield Mitary Archaeology ? If it's the latter the problem is as i'm sure all are aware most of the UK Battlefields sites are predominantly " no dig areas " . the preserve of Time Team and Tony Robinson and other establishment Historians who think they are the only ones that know anyhting about it !!!

    And this is exactly why we should become a group. Too long these people have held sway over sites that are less than 100 years old. Time for a change me thinks ! And as for the Time Team guys, the experts they normally get for the WW2 bits seem to make some rather elementary errors in identification. I always remember one they did in France on an old Normandy battlefield, (one of the hills....can't remember which), and the expert correctly identified a German 7.92 still live and in the link. HOWEVER.........what he didn't point out was that the cartridge was in the link UPSIDE DOWN ! I reckon they'd jammed it together to make better TV...........

    Count me in on this one guys.
    As has been said above, its about time that the likes of T-T got reminded that there are other people in this country interested in post Roman Empire!

    I'll gladly help out as much as I can in whatever capacity.
