Debating Metal Detecting in Europe


This page was set up following the lively discussion at a session during EAA 2015 in Glasgow, and aims to support and coordinate this emerging, as yet fragmented and intermittent debate. It is conceived as a community effort, hoping to provide resources and contacts by and for professional and amateur archaeologists, heritage managers, museum officials, policy makers and others. In addition, it may serve as a platform for further initiatives and projects that help to drive this debate forward. (Pieterjan Deckers, Andres Dobat, Michael Lewis, Portable Antiquities Scheme (site editor), Suzie Thomas (site editor)).
Five posts went up on 8th and 15th October 2015: Denmark, England and Wales, MEDEA, PAS, Reference bibliography. There were two more on 23rd Dec 2015: Call: Open Archaeology topical issue ‘Aspects of non-professional metal detecting in Europe’ as well as  Call: Roundtable session ‘Debating the value of archaeological material found by the public’, EAA Vilnius. Then in October 2016 there was a post: 'New publications: the Viking Great Army and the Battle of Lützen (1632)'. Since then, this great European debate seems to have stalled.
