Making archaeology public

What I would like to see (and I know many archaeologists share this frustration, as there have been several articles about it in British Archaeology magazine) is more archaeologists making their research available to the public. There is too much "grey literature" (unpublished site reports etc) and it needs to be deposited at the online repository which has existed since 1999 for that very purpose. It also needs to be written up accessibly so that ordinary people can get a grasp of the information.
