Following our recent complaint that the Staffordshire Hoard is still being looted, someone has pointed out “there’s security there so don’t distort the truth”. Well, we know about the “security” and photographed this single notice 6 years ago:

It post dated our revelation that nighthawking was going on and simply said: “this site is being monitored” – which, we’re willing to bet, meant an occasional drive by by a security officer. Not a lot of use on a dark night in a field high above the road and hence invisible from it and when manufacturers have given oiks the ability to mute the sound and light from their detectors. And of course, it disappeared very soon and hasn’t re-appeared.

Perhaps we need to point out that this is the site of the world’s greatest Anglo Saxon assemblage.
