I know this is not on topic, but, as my kids used to say, "He started it!"

First declaration of interest: I live in Winchester and chair both the City and the County archaeology Societies. I am not an archaeologist, but as some of you may know in the last few years, as well as working in electronics journalism I have completed a first degree and then a Master's in history.

Peter- Why is this a wonderful find?

The reason I ask is that the reaction to the story strikes me as not dissimilar to public reaction to an accident. I expect the professional titles to give objective coverage, while the general media will write ill-informed rubbish But I could be wrong
