hi geoff

i went over to talk to one ealier on a site i knew there was history on  but he was rude and basically slagged off us detectorists.i guess just a bit of mutual respect would be nice geoff thats all. im just ranting really but i dont get why on earth they think they have more rights than us

Basically because they do Undecided

Unfortunately Steve archaeologists see a lot of the damage that we detectorists can cause to a sight, not only Nighthawks but the everyday hobbyist who digs through stratification removing dating evidence.
Yes I think most now realise that we have added hundreds of sites to the record but they are also well aware that thousands of detectorists go out every weekend and don't record their finds which takes away evidence not add to it.
