So says the Bodleian Library recently

But of course, they’re talking about knowledge that has already been recorded but which may now be in peril.

Today in our fields about 500 bundles of historical knowledge will be dug up, not reported and hence destroyed by an unashamedly acquisitive hobby that is entirely unregulated. It is knowledge that never had the chance to be in peril.

It would be nice if Oxford academics could express dismay about THAT!
