English archaeologist on a National Geographic Channel show about the
recently uncovered Anhglo-Saxon gold hoard:

"When you're working on [cleaning] an object, it's amazing when you
get the reveal."

I.e., "the first clear sight of something that is being
microscopically cleane of debris."


"If the truth is half as bad as I think it is, you can't handle the truth."
