Please, don’t call it Digging for Treasure, call it Digging for Knowledge. If the TV company won’t agree to that then you’ll know you shouldn’t be involved.

But what about this. A T-shirt saying Just Keep Digging !!! What worse message could there be? Both PAS and CBA were involved in the programme and both say If you find something important JUST STOP DIGGING!

.

Even the National Council for Metal Detecting gets it: “If you discover an in situ find such as a hoard or burial… you need to stop digging!
