UK Artefact Hunting Rallies, all about Greed

"Rallies profit and greed" Post by Rosie MDF Thu Jun 10, 2021 12:46 am

Hi lam new to the hobby of metal detecting and want to go on a rallie. I have watched a few tutorials on utube and some of them are really bad. about land that has been done to death. yet they say it’s never been detected on. And some plant coins etc which are pure rubbish. it seems to me like a licence to print money so I think I will give that one a miss and stick to my own permissions 
Of course while she still can. What happens when planted finds are presented by their finders to the PAS for recording? In fact, since the PAS has stopped recording at rallies, is the fact that a presented find came from a pay-to-dig event actually entered onto the PAS record of that object so that researchers can treat any information about it with a pinch of salt?

There is plans in foot to get finds recorded at rallies again by the PAS.

But PAS says that the conditions at rallies do not allow the results to offset the effort and expense. So unless you change those conditions there's not much point.

More trained PAS volunteers will be used and I for one will be providing the environment needed to record finds on my organised metal detecting events.

Paul Barford said...

By "conditions", I was not referring to number of staff, but what happens in the field.

Why rely on voluntary labour? Metal detectorists and rally organisers leave the site with something in their pockets, and farmers get their cut... so why are you expecting somebody else to work for free so you can fill your pockets?

And if you can't work out how a Google Account works, "Unknown", why not put your name at the bottom of your comment? Simple to do, makes the context of writing clear.
