The Finds Liaison Officer at Lenborough (see yesterday) has said: “Archaeological people have criticised me for digging it there and then but there was no way we could guard that hoard overnight. Would there have been anybody to come and help?”

We beg to differ. A lot.

Large vehicles can be parked over find spots. Security firms can be hired to work nights, including at Xmas. People who are going to be holding their hand out for hundreds of thousands of life-changing pounds from the public could provide or pay for the necessary security. Couldn’t they. What sort of entitlement-obsessed person wouldn’t?

It’s time PAS dropped its damaging insistence that staff say nothing to upset detectorists.
