14 Last Thoughts The biggest problems faced by the industry are appalling margins and loss of skills - it is just not as much fun as it used to be (at all levels) {IfA Registered, FAME member} Large numbers of qualified archaeologists have recently come here from europe to work. They often have had a good(free)Socialist education in Poland. This has led to a reduction in the price of trenched evaluations which has in turn led to a reduction in prices for geophysical surveys. Geophysics organisations are increasingly devoting time to locating drains rather than archaeology in order to survive. {not IfA Registered, not FAME member} [nb – while 1.5% of the UK archaeological workforce was Polish in 2007-08, no Polish archaeologists were identified in the 2012-13 returns] You haven't got time to hear my views..... {not IfA Registered, not FAME member}
