I see [no]thing "funny" in a group of metal detectorists deliberately misleading heritage professionals, wasting their time and creating friction with a landowner. But then I am not an irresponsible guffawing metal detectorist. The "funny story" is published on a blog accompanied by a vintage-looking photo of an old man in a conservatory with a grin on his face and a spade in his hand, and in front of him on the table a scatter of metal-detected items. Where did they come from and where are these objects now?
