Sanctitas and Artefact Hunters' "Standards"

Sanctitas? 'Bemused' and now blasphemous Mr Welsh obviously has absolutely no idea of the concept.

"Am I out of bounds?" asks a metal detectorist who needs to ask, on a blog supposedly showcasing his personal "standards". He is assured by fellowing guffawing M8s that he is right on topic. As we saw with the fate of the John Winter blog, the cerebral is wasted on the bulk of web-active detectorists. What keeps their visitor numbers up is lowbrow, dumb-down, attention-span-easy topics mixed in with loads of anti-preservationist (anti-establishment, anti-academic) demagogy, egregious name calling and mudslinging.

TAKE A GOOD LOOK at these attitudes, for these are precisely the sort of people the PAS wants to grab more and more millions of public quid to make into the "partners" of the British Museum, archaeological heritage professionals and to whom they want us all to entrust the exploitation of the British archaeological record. Take a good look and decide what you think about that as a "policy".
