Re: Suits of Armour opps

Not only privately owned but a listed property by Historic Scotland and such drastic excavations as might be required to expose the suits of armour or other artifacts would have to pass muster in that bailiwick as well.  Like so many things in this world, it does work like Mickey  Rooney shouting with an irrepressible grin "Hey, let's put on a show!"  or in this context "Hey let's dig up some suits of armour"  And if you think its unusual, try digging for artifacts around Stonehenge, or Notre Dame de Paris or at the site of the Battle of the Little Bighorn.  Private ownership is only the beginning of the issue,  set rules for archaelogical excavations and undending bureaucratic red-tape are just a couple of others.
Would that it were not so complex but it seems it's a condition of that business called life.

Great idea but the Chapels are privately owned

This is just an idea thrown out to see your reaction or meeting of minds.
As we technically own the two suits of armour burried in Gringol Chapel, could it be considered that we se if they are still if they are still in good enough shape to recover and put on display?
