|Innocent until proven guilty: eight arrested men|
Is Bonkers Britain at last getting tough with history pilferers and knowledge thieves? Sadly not yet. In Britain these folk get a pat on the head and invitations to work as "partners" with archaeologists. The events described above happened in Europe, in the very centre of Europe to be precise, near Łódż in Poland. Here archaeological artefacts belong to the state and you have to have a permit to go and look for them. No doubt these eight men will have a chance to show any search permits they have in court.
