Re: “A strange and awkward ceremony at Folly Beach

Gato..Blind Blind

When a person of your ilk, cannot, nor will not, see that the Ivor Noel-Hume has given Historical Archaeologists there JOBS, you shoot yourself in the head.

The entire realm of Historical Archaeologist who know INH's contributions are wrong and you are..cough..cough..right..let's see your Wiki page..

You are such a self righteous, sanctimonious person, that I doubt you are in the field of Archaeology. You are just a shut-in with a computer and Internet access.

IrrelevantGato1952...so be it.

I have done more in a day than you shall in 10 lifetimes.

Now stop drooling and go back to your crayons.

You are not relevant, and I sir am done with you, period.

Re: “A strange and awkward ceremony at Folly Beach

This my last post to gato"Bliss"1952,

You hung yourself with your own words.
"(he) believes archaeology is "the handmaiden of history" - you can guess what I think about that." You had the nerve to write that, how dare you!

To DISHONOR the name of Ivor Noel-Hume, who IS THE FATHER OF HISTORICAL ARCHAEOLOGY, shows how naive and self-important you feel in your sad little life. And it is not surprising how you did not respond to bhoucks2011....

As for Ivor Noel-Hume, whom Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II awarded in 1992 "Officer of the British Empire" for his Archaeological Contributions, here is his contributions to our Country's History;

Ivor Noël Hume
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ivor Noël Hume (born 1927) is a British-born archaeologist and author, heralded by his peers as the "father" of Historical Archaeology. He studied at Farmingham College and St. Lawrence College in England, spent a short stint in the British Army, and an assistant stage manager for a London theater, before deciding to pursue archaeology as a career and joining the staff of Guildhall Museum in London in 1949. His early speciality was 17th and 18th century wine bottles. Later, he became chief archaeologist and director of the expanded Colonial Williamsburg archaeology program in 1957,[1] and subsequently became the director of the Department of Archaeological Research, until his retirement in 1988.

His achievements including a number of finds: the seventeenth century site of Wolstenholme Towne, at Carter's Grove Plantation just east of Williamsburg. Wolstenholme at Martin's Hundred was one of the early Virginia settlements after Jamestown and evidence of the 1622 Indian attack were found in the death of several of the citizens and the discovery of Thomas Harriot's "science center" on Roanoke Island, North Carolina. The Wolstenholme project was subject of two major articles in National Geographic Magazine (June, 1979 and January 1982). Major excavations in Colonial Williamsburg included work at the original site of Eastern State Mental Hospital, conducted in 1972, which was the largest site work since the excavation of the Governor's Palace in 1930, the James Geddy House and shop, Weatherburn's Tavern and outbuildings and the cabinetmakers shop.

His work is noted for the effort to put the social life and economic overtones of history into the discoveries unearth through archaeological examination—thus, Historical Archaeology. When he began his career, "historical archaeology did not exist as an academic discipline. It fell to Noël Hume's books, lectures, and television presentations to help bring it to the forefront of his profession, where it stands today," the University of Virginia Press said in its fall 2010 catalogue, which features his autobiography newest book, A Passion for the Past: The Odyssey of a Transatlantic Archaeologist. Carmel Schrire, Rutgers University, author of Digging through Darkness: Chronicles of an Archaeologist, said of Noël Hume's book: "Noël Hume is a household name. This book should be a professional classic, to be read alongside other memoirs like those of Graham Clark, Glyn Daniel, Gertrude Caton-Thompson, and Mortimer Wheeler."

Noël Hume also has written of his hobbies as related to archaeology: If These Pots Could Talk: Collecting 2,000 years of British Household Pottery, Early English Delftware from London to Virginia, and 1775: Another Part of the Field, (a month-by-month account of everyday life in Virginia).

His newest book, Belzoni -- The Giant Archaeologists Love to Hate, another University of Virginia Press publication, is scheduled for release in October 2011. "Noël Hume, who has a well-deserved reputation for archaeological and historical detective work, has written a very clear and elegant book, fully up to the very high standards he has practiced for many years," said Brian M. Fagan, author of The Rape of the Nile: Tomb Robbers, Tourists and Archaeologists in Egypt. Sally-Ann Ashton of the University of Cambridge's The Fitzwilliam Museum, writes of Belzoni, "Ivor Noel Hume offers an informative and beautifully crafted biography of a man who is often demonized by modern-day scholars. The narrative allows the reader to fell as if they are by Belzoni's side, and also on his side, by successfully exploring the complex character of this remarkable historical figure."

He also has written more than 20 books related to archaeology, such as Archaeology in Britain, Here Lies Virginia, All the Best Rubbish, Martin's Hundred, The Virginia Adventure: Roanoke to James Towne, A Guide to Artifacts of Colonial America, Historical Archaeology, Treasure in the Thames, In Search of This & That: Tales from an Archaeologist's Quest, and Something from the Cellar: More of this This & That.

He was recognized by Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain in 1993 and was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.) for service to the British cultural interests in Virginia."

You are not worthy to clean his trowel. Again, pathetic jealousy on your part.

Re: “A strange and awkward ceremony at Folly Beach

Wow gato1952!
All of those words in your response.....and you truly said nothing.

Even the Father of "Historical Archaeology", Ivor Noel-Hume ( a personal friend of mine I might add) believes that amateurs do know, in most instances "know more about their own neighborhoods than do the professionals."

You sir, wreak of the stench of jealousy. You do history an injustice, and I pity your short sightedness.

You have seen history destroyed rather than seen it saved.

But after all, you do DO IT for a living, and on my dime too. Pathetic.
