Lest anyone is in doubt about the nature of today’s event taking place right now, here are two recent announcements by the organiser:

The value of finds that don’t have to be shared with the landowner has been increased to £3.000 “because that’s only fair”.

If a “treasure” reward is paid then: “if our farmers stick to the agreement we make with them they should only keep half of anything over £3000 so if it’s under and they get paid they should pay the finder the money they received.”
