I just received this from the Chairman of Medway History Finders artefact hunting club and thought I'd share it (comment on Focus on UK metal Detecting: Holedigger Pete Looking for a Real Man)
Hi Paul, hope your having a good mate? [sic, I was actually having tea] Iv [sic] now having a club meeting and have asked a [sic] archie to come along and give us a talk on how to deal with a hoard. To tell all the members what to do and not what to do.This way we can't fall out with people like yourself. This has been good and bad for the club, but with a bit of luck what im doing now should sort out any problem we have all the best Pete.What would have been better still would be for the FLO to have explained it as part of her outreach before the club went out and for the archaeologist to ask them to keep off known sites , especially those with "mounds" and other upstanding earthworks.
