@lornarichardson one of the most crass, ill informed and damaging articles in national press I've ever read encouraging metal detecting
Mike Nevell @Archaeology_UoS 2 godz.2 godziny temu W odpowiedzi do @lornarichardson I can't see any redeeming features in this article or the event. Why would the BM do this? Undermines the PAS totally.PAS started undermining their own mission from day two, I think. Anyhow, this seems to be the article meant (I do not know as Ms Richardson thinks she has nothing to say of interest to me so has kindly blocked me from accessing her tweets) Laura Silverman, 'What it's like to uncover buried treasure with a metal detector – and how to do it yourself' Telegraph 23 April 2017
To celebrate 20 years of the Treasure Act, the Telegraph is launching Treasure 20 in association with the British Museum. The competition will highlight the 20 best treasure finds discovered over the past 20 years, picked by experts and Telegraph representatives. [...] Readers will then be able to vote online for their favourite.Which - pray tell us British Museum - will result in what, precisely?
Lewis says there are up to 10,000 regular metal detectorists.You've pinched MY (old) figures Mr Lewis. Sam Hardy says there are many more. I think he's right.
Dr Marsden believes “an absolutely enormous amount” of treasure is left in the ground. “Metal detectorists are like rescue archaeologists,” says Dr Marsden.No, Treasure hunters are tTreasure huntersm, archaeologists are archaeologists, archaeology is not 'just' about digging up old things and if Dr Marsden really does think that is all it is, he needs to get another job.
