Dear Fellow Landowners,

What would YOU call these well known detectorists on a public forum:

Allectus: “Has the farmer got a machine with a ditching bucket (they usually have) he/you can use? …..If he has, that’s the way to go mate.”

“Cheers A, I’m meeting the farmer on a Saturday, he says he might put the plough through it next week for me. Didn’t think about asking him to given a deeper dig, I’ll see what he says.”

“Allectus is right mate, as a first port of call try and get the farmer to scrape 6″ off at a time, depends how interested he is if he will do it or not, and how much you can tell him it might be worth his while”.

Nectardetector: “Well found mate it’s sum buzz isn’t it ingnore all the bad comments you did it pal and nobody can take that away congrats”.

Not to labour the point here, but nobody here is advocating any deeper digging with without the presence /advice/agreement of the FLO are they? ”

“Yep, I am!”.

OK, these are greedy selfish ignorami who are never going to be educated about not vandalising archaeological layers. But why on earth has PAS not educated every farmer?
