RECYCLED FOR THE NEWBIE COINHUNTER
Since this Bubba is dealing with cold temps and nursing aches and pains, I am once again recycling a scribble from one of my books. This one is from “In Search of Treasure”, published of course by White’s Electronics… Heres hoping it’s informative and useful to someone, somewhere…
HOW DARE THESE TEKKIES DO THIS!
They profess that it’s not jealousy when a hoard or historical find is uncovered, but my, my, my how they can suddenly go berserk when one is made. The recent Lenborough hoard has the archaeological blogosphere huffing, puffing and blowing so much smoke it’s hilarious. They piss and moan about how it was physically recovered (despite there being a FLO present), what damage was done to the area, and how now, everything of importance is gone. Well of course. I mean now that this small, six by six area was disturbed, no reason to follow-up with any additional digging is there?
Yep, probably better this hoard, like all the others found by detectorists, was left in the ground for that archaeological dig that was surely going to take place someday in the not too distant future?
WELL SAID MARK WALLACE
I KNOW ITS A DAY EARLY BUT I WANTED TO WISH YOU ALL A VERY ENJOYABLE…
