In the shops already is a detector sold under the Science Museum brand. This has reference to the PAS on the packaging and also in the instructions.

I wrote to that, but fear it probably goes to a young girl who puts brochures in envelopes. Is that the best there is? The site was not very encouraging viewing, the main point they seem concerned to get over is from "how deep" their machines can detect metal objects ...
I know Bill Wyman has been "involved with" the PAS, the press makes enough noise about it. But there are other detectorists who have also been "involved with" the PAS who have very noisily not supported the new Code of Practice (and instead written their own). That's why I was wondering if anyone had contact details.
As for the PAS, who knows what they will say about a metal detector "for little hands"? See the PAStexplorers Anglo-Saxon village animation http://www.pastexplorers.org.uk/ for a possible clue... but does it give the right message to these youngsters what archaeology is about?
