    I can see both sides to this, on the one hand our museums are full to busting, and this stuff will not remain in the ground un damaged for ever, so if the night-hawkers dig it up at least some one will enjoy it.

    Why should any ancient thing found belong to the crown any way, it would probably be lost forever if it were not for these guys spending days, week, months looking for it.

    But no one should be allowed to cause damage, trespass or use threatening behavior.
