Spotted my first typo yesterday - a "principle" instead of "principal" - do you want such things posted here or via pm?

Or, errrr, not at all?

Ace book.

Can you pm me the page number?

Spoke to the guy (David Thornton) who in my head (after reading quite a bit of local hist) is Leeds' top historian.

He said 'me and my mrs absolutely love it, it6's so new and fresh and I like the fact you say I don't know instead of waffling and not admitting it. But other historians and academics will hate it but take that as a compliment' and he congratulated me on the in depth research   , 'I haven't found an error yet.......although there is a typo, Armley House/Gott's Pk Mansion was built in 1781 not 1981.'  

Fortunately all the dates in the entry showed it to be typo......or perhaps Mr Gott was Doctor Who.

Page 7, about 2/3rds down:  

"... is Principle Investigator of the Afar Rift Consortium"

Should (probably) be

"... is Principal Investigator of the Afar Rift Consortium"

I'm never very good at spotting my own slips (of which there are many), but I'm often okay at spotting those of others.

Not an endearing trait.  

BTW: I like your writing style - very entertaining.

Cheers Grind and don't worry. I think you're right but I can't do anything until I get Butts approval.....he gets quite vicious.

Do you know, I'll have got titles like that straight off their website. Should I tell them?

Prolly.  

Principal scientists tend to look into principles.

Unless, of course, they're principally financial types interested in principal. In, errrr, principle.  hgfhjgfjgfj

It's still possible he might be a Principle Scientist, but it would be a strange title.
