The UK metal detectorist caught saying on a metal detecting forum near you that he was going searching on field without the permission of the landowner and who was advised if he found something to report it from a different findspot, now has an explanation why he is being criticised here (Re: Unusual situation - What do you think.....):
But here's a thought - and I've done more research than he did before publishing........ Looking at this...... [picture pbarford_887.jpg (81.19 KiB) Viewed 41 times].... And reading this...... http://childhoodtraumarecovery.com/2013 ... rnal-bond/ Looks like a classic case to me [Obraz usunięty przez nadawcę. / UP1111Obraz usunięty przez nadawcę. 8--p] But with some darker interludes perhaps.....The metal detectorist follows the regrettably constant trend in the milieu in trying to drag any discussion of any aspect of artefact hunting and collecting down to a personal level and frame it in terms of abuser/victim. In line with this, bodkins surmises I had an "abusive mother" which is his explanation of why I discussed his case. Like all the others, he simply cannot accept that he is in the wrong, and like the majority of his fellows attempts to fix the blame on another. This is why PAS outreach is doomed to fail"as a technique for curbing malpractice.
TAKE A GOOD LOOK at this behaviour, for these are precisely the sort of people the PAS wants to grab more and more millions of public quid to make into the "partners" of the British Museum, archaeological heritage professionals and to whom they want us all to entrust the exploitation of the archaeological record. Take a good look and decide what you think about that as a "policy".
