Mark Harrison (Historic England’s Head of Heritage Crime and Policing Advice) pulled no punches about recent nighthawking at Hadrian’s Wall:

“We may never see or fully understand the objects taken or damaged because they have been removed from their original sites with no care or record as to their history or context.”

What a crying shame that exactly the same can be said of the great bulk of “legal” detecting yet isn’t.

“We may never see or fully understand the objects taken or damaged because they have been removed from their original sites with no care or record as to their history or context.”

Now the shame is being compounded by a concerted attempt to discredit the academic work of Dr Sam Hardy which effectively illustrates exactly that. What have we come to in this country?
