The PAS spend far more money pussy footing up to the detecting community
than the archaeological community. OK they need educating but so do many of
the general public. Lets see PAS get out and show these people who are
digging their gardens how to record etc.
Actually Rob, the PAS do not pussy foot up to the detecting community at
alland certainly not as much as they should do considering that this one
sector of the public almost (almost) single handedly justifies their
existance, (even this is not to the satisfavtion of some).
The PAS was set up to cater to the general public, not the archaeological
communtiy. And it is the detecting community, who everyone is so quick to
knock at every single opportunity, which is by and large the only sector of
the genral public that gives the PAS the time of day.
