Another Significant Find Reported as Anti-Collector Archaeologist Seeks Ban on Metal Detecting
The Portable Antiquities Scheme has reported another significant find in Norfolk. Meanwhile, a Greek academic archaeologist working in the United Kingdom, whose career has been devoted to seeking the repatriation of cultural artifacts to corrupt, bankrupt countries like Greece, has advocated that metal detecting be banned. Thankfully, the researcher's views fall well outside the norm for British archaeologists. Most have since made peace with metal detectorists. After all, their finds, when properly recorded, have directed archaeologists to sites that would otherwise never be uncovered.
