Hi Jim

Put me down for the Saturdy for sure and possibly Sunday.
Spoke to Warren from GUARD on Saturday in Stirling  but he didn't know much about it. Is it another outfit doing the Inverkeithing dig?

I'm away to Loch awe from tomorrow but when I get back I'll put in a new section for archaeological digs and surveys Jim.

That will help the relevant threads not being lost amongst the general chat
Oh look! another arsehole ;-) (people watching the professional beggars round central station)
