Since I seem to get myself in trouble of late, I will turn this post over to the kind-hearted and sweet John Howland, the old (and usually soused) Brit who lives in the South of England…
Hope you all get out detecting this weekend and find a few keepers….
SOUNDS A BIT RUDE TO ME
I found this phrase on John Hooker’s excellent blog as part of a larger comment by someone from Dallas, Texas:-
“[…] negative Jungian state known as Enantiodromia. […]”
Well, that’s easy for you to say Dick. Now try it without a glass of Merlot. Enantiodromia? Sounds like something the Doc prescribes to get yer bowels moving.
THE TRUTH LIVES HERE
By contrast over on the UK’s Portable Antiquities Scheme website (a factual database), they have this to say:-
“Over the last 15 years more than 920,000 archaeological finds have been recorded by the British Museum’s Portable Antiquities Scheme for the advancement of archaeological knowledge. In the same period over 8,500 finds have been reported as Treasure, enabling the most important finds to be acquired by museums across the country. In 2012, 73,903 finds were recorded by the PAS, and 990 Treasure cases reported.”
If only something similar could be brought into being in the US….

I’ll see y’all in the bar!
