    My picture this week shows retired Devon builder Larry Alexander with a collection of bits of lead. Mr Alexander, from Torrington, bought himself a metal detector three weeks ago and set to work in a field where Cavaliers and Roundheads engaged in a bit of civil warring 340-odd years ago. And up popped 40 lead figures. The theory is that the lead figures are, in fact, chessmen, and that the Cavaliers whiled away the time before their skirmish in intellectual pursuits.

Students there are protesting that noisy building work is disrupting their exam revision.Student protest is not what it was, though.Perhaps it is a sign of the times - or a sign I am growing old - but there were no campus sit-ins, no smoking dope, no placard waving or marches, and no throwing eggs at dignitaries.

    Construction minister Tony Baldry appears to have had a cordial reception on his fact-finding/peace-keeping mission to Malaysia and other points east. The local press said his meeting with the Master Builders Association of Malaysia (MBAM) was 'highly successful'.One reason may have been that Mr Baldry is reported to have offered MBAM British funding to set up a South-East Asian Centre for Construction Innovation.The local press report says there is a shortage of engineers in Malaysia and the

    The decision came after an archaeological investigation found that the site had been previously used as a medieval burial ground and church, and that beneath the Middle Aged relics was a building dating back to Roman times.Unfortunately, Lincolnshire's present-day diffidence about disturbing archaeological remains is a relatively recent inhibition.The site has not exactly been unused since medieval times: its last incarnation was as an archaeologically undistinguished petrol station.
