A novice metal detectorist from the West Country asks "why is not even mentioning your name allowed on the forum?" No idea Jed, no idea. Perhaps it's some kind of a silly superstition some intellectually -challenged detectorists have. Like the hoard hunter that had the gold prayer:
"Spirits of Yesteryear,
make golden things appear
in my pockets, in my draws,
in my wellies and eager paws.
Let no one see, let no one say,
what I have dug up today.
Belial lord of the Earth,
guide my coil across the soil
to find much things of worth.
I guess if you do not name a thing, in the eyes of the airbrains it does not necessarily exist. That's how the heritage debate looks in the UK.
TAKE A GOOD LOOK at this behaviour, for these are precisely the sort of people the PAS wants to grab more and more millions of public quid to make into the "partners" of the British Museum, archaeological heritage professionals and to whom they want us all to entrust the exploitation of the archaeological record. Take a good look and decide what you think about that as a "policy".
