Clevelands Prehistoric pot pieces evcavated at Stainsby

These pot pieces were excavated from what I strongly believe to be a prehistoric sacrificial site in south west Cleveland in the north east of England.

All of these pieces were found close to many preserved unbutchered bones, including Human all in approximately a 15 x 5 metre area very close to an outcrop of the Cleveland Dyke . The same type of  Rock used at Stonehenge .
                  The two pieces above still appear to have burned food remains on the surface

Tees Archaeology the the right way to find and record stuff .

I have recently been involved in quite a few arguments with so called professional's regarding the rights and wrongs of searching for and recording Archaeological finds . I have been informed via what looks like paste and copy professionals that ime doing it all wrong. I was informed today by the author of another local blog again via post and copy, that I know nothing regarding the area I have worked for the past 30 years, apparently because I have recorded it incorrectly and will not conform to paper reports I have already proved wrong.

I work in deep beck valleys so have to work fast often with out the chance to record finds in the slow often useless manor so called professionals say it should be done , because if I did most finds would be lost forever .
