"Bronze Age" on EBay: 'Public Participation in Archaeology'

eBay axe
Beginning of January 2019:  650 Bronze Age items on EBay, some misidentified, some obvious fakes, some being sold from countries where their export would be illegal. Some sold by dealers, some sold by metal detectorists. 212 of them come from UK only.

Somehow I really do not see any rationale behind claims being made by some that Collection-Driven Exploitation of the archaeological record is some form of incredibly positive 'public participation in archaeology'. That's nonsense.
