Mick’s leaving Time Team. Council for British Archaeology members and British Archaeology subscribers will be able to read why in Mick’s own words in the magazine that will soon be arriving, and it will be in the shops and available online on Friday.

This is a significant moment.
The Daily Mail has picked up from my interview, and already there are many sensible comments (all right, and some stupid ones too).
