Long ago, via a proxy, The Journal bought a copy of the ARCHI UK database (the site finding system for detectorists). We hope The Archaeological Establishment did the same as it contains much food for thought.

Anyway, as subscribers we’ve been sent special advance notification of the fact ARCHI is about to launch “the first British archaeological sites Android App“.They say it will “take us all to the next level when it comes to doing what we love” and have offered us access to a prototype “to discover and explore our nation’s rich heritage!”

But therein lies a profound mystery. We are told that when done responsibly metal detecting is harmless and beneficial. So why would detectorists be being offered details of 190,000 sites of archaeological significance on their phones? To make sure they avoid them?
