I'd be tempted I must admit.

The only thing I ever accidentally half-inched off a site was a flint handaxe. Beautiful thing but not on the same scale.

We've had an argument at work about this today - is the bloke a metal detector (as SkyNews put it) or a metal detective?

What an amazing find - can't help wondering how much it will be worth to him?

Good for him though !

isn't it beautiful.

Detector Definition 1. something or someone that detects.

He's a metal detector who uses a metal detector!

Don't you think dealing with this must have made a delightful change for the coroner who had to decide if it was treasure trove?

I thought - clumsily - that it was 'detectorist' (urgh).

Or did I just dream that?

In Staffordshire? <polishes DS' toy metal detector...>

I don' think he can be a metal detective. This is a metal detective.

The treasure is stunning.

Arf Threadie.
