Pandemic sparks a haul of treasure finds” … The British Museum said that more people were inspired to take up metal detector work as a form of exercise during the Covid-19 lockdowns, which added to the unexpected increase of back garden discoveries made in 2020.”

An unexpected increase in back garden finds” during lockdown?! That makes no sense and has to be explained to the public. It’s what is being reported in every region, but think about it: (a.) is there more treasure in back gardens and (b.) wouldn’t they have detected their back gardens very thoroughly as the first thing they did when they first bought their detector? What human being wouldn’t?

Does anyone care to guess where most of those extra finds (and extra Treasure rewards paid by the public) during lockdown actually came from? (No baloney please).
