[For more on Dr Hardy’s conclusions put “Sam Hardy” in our search box].

Dr Sam Hardy’s unequivocal conclusion that “permissive regulation is ineffective in minimising harm to heritage assets” has just been backed up by further strong  evidence supplied by Paul Barford. It really speaks for itself.

But not quite. The red column doesn’t include coins. Imagine how high it would be if it did!

Update, From Paul Barford 29/5/17:
…. “day after day, week after week, year after year until enough people say “hey, this can’t be right!”
That was yesterday, today the results of the same search would reveal the same pattern, and tomorrow, and the day after that. This erosion of the archaeological record to fill the pockets of those selling them, and the back bedroom shelves of those that buy them will go on, day after day, week after week, year after year until enough people say “hey, this can’t be right!” and heritage-aware society puts a STOP to this (Stop Taking Our Past – what is “wrong” with that sentiment?).

Where should that awareness be being created, and by whom?
