The UK and European Detecting Forum has had to suspended its Finds Identification Service as it was getting requests from people still  detecting.  They intended to re-open it but have now decided nothing will stop what’s happening. We could have told them that. The “hobby” includes:

  • nighthawks
  • people who dig up hoards in the absence of archaeologists
  • people who hide from farmers what they’ve found
  • and tens of thousands who don’t report all their finds to PAS.

Of course some of those will carry on detecting. They’ll be able to do so for as long as PAS pretends to farmers (and taxpayers, and the Government) that the only wrongdoers in detecting are “a tiny minority of nighthawks.
