    I visit the Shetland Islands to see family and there is always something archaeological going on, I absolutely love it! Orkney is on my list.

    Wish I had done Archaeology at university.

    Too late for that now methinks but it’s never too late to become an Alcohologist (!) Down a bottle of whisky and hunt for unknown treasures in your undies around the flat. Give meaning to your drunken stumblings by naming activities as quests; such as Raiders of the Lost Pringles. Porn Crusades IV, that kind of thing.

    I was an archaeologist for a few years, still keep a very keen interest in neolithic and bronze age Britain. I viewed the whole point of going on a dig as messing around with the ladies.

    My missus is constantly telling me to get into metal detecting as a hobby, I'm not convinced I'd stick with it if I did. I suppose it depends on how much early success you have and how you get on with the other detectorists.

    Anyone here like the Human League?

    My missus is the same. My interest is late Roman/ Dark Ages. I live in an area with some decent sites plus the family has land in Sussex which is surrounded by Roman roads, villas etc etc but I have never bothered with the detecting. She's always on about it.

    Done a bit on Roman sites in Northumberland. Looks quite easy on TV, but when you stand up after being on your hands and knees for hours you don't half feel it. Would have liked to have been on the dig at Castlefield.

    My ex-wife produced a tv documentary about the Staffordshire hoard and discussing the subject with her, the conclusion that I was inevitably drawn to is that people who dig for treasure are fucking weirdos.

    I have a mate that enjoys a good dig, the dirty munger.

    I think they must be drawn to our potentially finding shiny things.
