|A "small hill", not in Kent|
"...The day turned out great with sunshine the whole day. The usually finds were coming up, for instance bits of lead and some buttons and a bad Roman. I then moved onto a large mound / small hill that was flattened at the top and after about 10 minutes got a weak signal that turned out to be the first of some amazing finds...".Mound? Local knowledge in the social media about the findspot of this Anglo-Saxon grave group suggests:
The Facebook thread to which I refer (and will discuss later) has some interesting comments from some British archaeologists who at long last have recovered their voice and seem to have had enough of the wanton erosion and disturbance of the archaeological heritage for personal entertainment and profit. They seem to resent Britain's wholly inadequate response. In other European countries, digging a hole into an archaeological site will earn you jail time, in Bonkers Britain you get a pat on the head and "you done right lad, thank you" from the establishment.
