I received an email a while back and completely forgot to mention this:
Schlanger, N., and Aitchison, K. (eds) (2010), Archaeology and the Global Economic Crisis. Tervuren: Culture Lab Éditions.
Note, i.a., chapters 4 (by Kenneth Aitchison, with annex 1 at end of volume) and 5 (by Anthony Sinclair) on the prospects for archaeology in the UK.
I haven’t read it myself, but that’s because it’s 150 pages long and I’m not working in commercial archaeology at the moment. But I imagine that considering it’s joint authored by Kenny Aitchison it’ll be very relevant to the UK situation.
