Archaeological Establishment Looks the Other Way

Heritage Action's Farmer Brown has a legitimate gripe about artefact hunters and the search-and-take agreements they con landowners into signing:
These contracts are a scandal in plain sight with profound consequences for  farmers, who can seriously deny it? So it would be nice if The Archaeological Establishment stopped looking the other way.
It'd be nice if the UK archaeological establishment did anything at all, but all they do is post pretty "Finds Friday" pictures of privately-owned decontextualised objects ripped out of their site context and call it "archaeological outreach".
