    I'm overjoyed!
    My Viking is doing something she loves.
    Drawing!
    She hasn't felt up to drawing in quite some time.

    Mike,

    Glad the missus is feeling better give her a big hug for me. Maybe some fermented foods would be good for her such as kosher pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi, kefir and that sort of stuff.

    It isn't done yet, but the Viking asked me to bend your minds.
    What all do you see so far, turn it upside down and sideways..
    You'll probably have to zoom it.

    Just messing with you as usual But that reminds me of a cheap ruler if you don't have one handy. A dollar bill is almost exactly six inches long. I'm all for saving money. But it would be cool to have a caliper.
    Another method is using your the span of your hand which is "The distance from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the little finger when the hand is fully extended, formerly used as a unit of measure equal to about 9 inches (23 centimeters)."
    In the case of cannonballs you got to be precise in measurements however.

    So true this actually happened to me several years ago....on a lark I signed up for a free online archeology course put on by an Ivy League University in the U.S.

    In the discussion part of the forum I made the mistake of admitting I was a detectorist.....well one of the attendees accused me of being a grave robber, etc.....

    Turns out he was just a member of some hokey historical society or other in Europe with no real credentials....well he wouldn't back off and since the rules of the forum stated no harrasing, bashing and the usual b.s. I reported him to the University course givers well they took his side....their mistake.....

    I called them pretty much every name in the book stating that half of the artifacts from King Tut's tomb which was escavated by archeologist went missing and were sold off by archelogist and btw that was a grave and not raided by detectorists.

    Numerous North American native remains have been robbed and stored in museum vaults and the natives have to sue archeologists and museums for the return of these remains for proper burial.

    Sorry for the rant but it burns my butt when these hypocrites accuse us of being grave robbers.
    There are untold numbers of historians and archaeologists who have celebrated careers, but never get out of their universities and museums and get a speck of dust on their shoes.
    I don't think the robbers and looters are out doing the things we do, and it is unfair to lump us in with those kind.
    I think history should be preserved, of course. Would any of us here melt down gold objects from a shipwreck? At the least, we know something like that is worth more in terms of money than it is melted.
    What bothers me is that when someone finds an interesting site and lets the goverment know, they can confiscate the place, bar the original finder, and other peasantry, from the spot, and bury finds in universities where only a select few can see them. Or put them in a museum and charge people to look at them. And some of the finds are stolen by the arcaeologists themselves, as you mentioned.
    Oh well. Guess we are doomed to war, until the government has declared every acre of land off limits to us.
    But I can see a movie opportunity here. A Romeo and Juliet type love story. A metal detectorist falls in love with an accredited arcaeologist. Hilarity,drama, shenanigans ensue!
