A Kinder and Gentler Paul Barford?

Kudos to Cambridge archaeologist Helen Geake for apparently striking a chord of reason in the most unsuspected of places.  Cultural property issues are always open to debate and philosophical adversaries are not always evil, as Mr. Barford discovered in another "face-to-face" with one well known ancient coin dealer at a Warsaw coin show last year.  We can all hope that the old saying about leopards and spots is faulted.

Sadly, if you look at his blog it will be readily apparent that is an illusion. Perhaps there is something in the water in the UK that made it seem he was turning over a new leaf. Now that he is back home in Poland that is all gone.
