Heritage Action’s Nigel Swift was recently invited to contribute to Halte au Pillage! – a collaborative book by authors based throughout Europe, which addresses and calls for policies to put an end to self-serving artefact prospecting. It was recently launched in Paris and has been well received.

 

 

Nigel’s chapter is part of a section called “Le scandale des détecteurs de métaux” and is titled Fantaisies, fictions et faussetés : quelques tristes réalités derrière la coopération entre « metal detectorists » et archéologues en Grande Bretagne” . 

He commented: “It was refreshing working with European colleagues. None of them sees the British system as the success that officialdom here represents it as abroad. I was glad to show that not all of Les Rosbifs go along with it.”
