I offer fullsome apologies to Paul Blinkhorn and
any other TT persons who felt offended by my
message re mitigation for metal detecting.
I realise now that the sentence in which I
attempted (ironically) to suggest that the public
image of archaeologists (like that of metal
detectorists) might be subject to stereo-typing,
should not have directly followed the sentence
'It's harsh to criticise all detectorists because
of the actions of a few'
I personally have no axe to grind with TT or TT
staff and certainly did not want to suggest that
they are in anyway associated with illegality.
