Well my good friend Paul Barford, a.k.a Warsaw Wally, is crying both crocodile tears and foul at the same time with his most recent blog post titled Metal Detectors on Sale. Seems he’s equating the number of detectors for sale on Ebay to an ever-increasing number of new participants. Wondering if it ever occurred to him that a few of these detectors are for sale because detectorists have dropped out?
Preceding that post he went on about another make-believe theory, the AEC, or what is known to he and his bosom buddy Nigel Swift as the Artefact Erosion Counter…. a wild ass, “see if it sticks on the wall” idea or method of counting how many artefacts UK tekkies don’t report. If you are to believe this cockamamie concept everyone with a detector is a night hawk and a thief.
This latest effort to make changes is because more and more academics are now embracing the PAS and the idea that working with detectorists is the way to go.
Hot As Hell!
How are you dealing with the heat? Here in my neck of the woods we’re setting records. Yesterday it was 108, today they’re projecting 110 and that’s the temp, not the heat index. Welcome to Texas…
