Yours Lucky?

Jim - I came across this recently. I seem to remember that you found it in Fife.
Did you know that the tamper featured in a lecture in May by Stuart Campbell at Warwick University and also featured in the "Love Archaeology" magazine.
What a great pity the finder wasn't mentioned in the article. I wonder if you were given credit in the lecture?

Many thanks for this John, I still have this pipe tamper as part of my collection. It was found near Falkland from memory and was submitted for assessment when Ms Jenny Shiels was incharge of the TTU. Stuart was Jenny's assistant administrator at the time. I can recall removing the muck from it and wondering which way up it went, and then guessing what it was. I knew Jenny would be first to look at it so had a good giggle at what her reactions were likely to be after viewing it.

                         Many thanks for providing me with a very happy memory of events associated with this particular find.
