Our Counter proposes 8,000 detectorists each finding 0.69 recordable artefacts per week (far lower than all surveys suggest) so those two figures combined result in it “ticking” upwards at a rate of one recordable find each minute during daylight hours. But look at this detecting Facebook group ….

md-facebook-group
It has 10,787 members! That changes everything. If a single group has nearly 11,000 members surely we can assume there are another 11,000 at least who aren’t members. So the total is 22,000 not 8,000! If so, collectively they’re removing one recordable artefact every 21 seconds (and only telling PAS about little more than a tenth of them). Is that a satisfactory state of affairs?
