|rallies mapped by the PAS website|
A few years ago (PACHI Sunday, 8 May 2011, 'Commercial Artefact Hunting rallies in the UK attended (legitimised) by the PAS') I gave a list of the commercial artefact hunting rallies which the PAS website admitted legitimising by their attendance to boost their database numbers. The website has now been revamped and that list containing as many as 392 such commercial events has been moved. I take the opportunity to give the link to it, now hidden away in "other searches". They form some interesting clusters, which seem related more to the organization of commercial artefact hunting in the UK and its relationship with the PAS 'partner organizations' than the actual distribution of archaeological sites in the British Isles.
