I never, but this morning I have, and its not good reading for the future of our hobby of metal detecting. If you ever wondered where a ban for our hobby of metal detecting may come from, it could be from this.
As the author of a blog post I came across puts it:
Should the ‘Valletta Convention on the Protection of the Archaeological Heritage’ be elevated from ‘convention’ status to become law in the UK, the hobby of metal detecting along with amateur archaeology, will be snuffed out overnight forever.
You can read about this Valletta Convention by clicking the link above.
