Archaeology in Ireland
Madam, - Margaret Gowen ("Archaeology in Ireland can be proud of its standards", July 22nd)) was responding to the latest protest from professionals internationally against the Market's domination ("Archaeology needs to recover its core principles and ethics", July 15th). The general public understands that to be "market-led", as Ms Gowen justifies, is to undermine a "deep and genuine interest" in principles and public accountability.
