Red faces in the Heritage Sector?

Heritage Action, who can spell, on those that collect antiquities and can't: The Heritage Sector’s rouge element. There is nothing new in collectors accusing archaeology of harbouring both "rogue elements" and "reds" of course. The point is, of course, that the problem with "metal detecting" is not that there are "nighthawks", the problem is with the destruction of archaeological evidence that accompanies both legal and illegal artefact hunting. The "nighthawks are the only problem" myth is just that - a convenient untruth.
