"Stealing" Archaeology
#13
Nice one Beir!

absolutely...

and :face-stir: away vulpes... Big Grin The issue only arises if the person who removes from the topsoil an artefact that would never have been found anyway... does not let people know.... However.. imagine the joy of being rung up every 3 seconds...
I have found a fragment of 19th century pottery.

I would expect people who find either significant metallic finds... OR significant scatters of pottery (that may represent subsurface stratified archaeology that is currently being mixed up) to let us know... I can cope with a tiny loss, if it represents a major gain.
