I see that many of the items listed make no mention of where the item was found nor give any information other than what the item is. Little or no provenance.
I am sure that there is a legitimate reason for this. It's not as if any sites have ever been looted or stripped. It is just a harmless hobby, right?

One of the star items from the Thornborough Rally – the Langdale Axe – has

This strikes me as in contrast to the glowing account of the Rally
contained in the report. “I talked to over 40 detectorists over the two
days and not one of them - not one cared about money, each and every one
has an interest in the past, as deep and valid as mine”.
