    They should make a series on how so called archeologists like the Time T*ts destroy and throw away objects, by bulldozing down to where they begin, and then ask whos finding and preserving the nations heritage !

    Re: Ireland : Metal detecting

    Yep...If i discover something fantastic there isn't a chance I'm going to damage it in any way,but if the "Govt" doesn't provide some recognition and fair compensation well there is no way I'm going to run and give it to them so they can shrug their shoulders and file it away in some museum's basement never to see the light of day.Professional looters are one thing but a lone detectorist who uncovers some lost artifact and gets a chill up their spine at the history and craftsmanship, I feel has as much right to ownership of that object as anyone.

    Well, put it this way, Able_walker. If a MD'er or anybody for that reason, finds a chalice/treasure or something of great historical significance, if the law was there to compensate them of 50% of it's worth, give them the appropriate recognition and display the treasure for all of the world to admire in a museum, it's a hell of a lot better than hiding it under the bed or God forbid becoming one of those #@!$%#@!s on Ebay that sell their countries heritage to the highest bidder.

    Re: Ireland : Metal detecting

    One of the biggest problems too, is that an MDer finds something, but then when its given to the Archies, its them thats suddenly found it, no mention of the MDer :-(

    Re: Ireland : Metal detecting

    Hi,

    I'm new here. I'm going to Ireland in June 08. I just read all your posts and I think at the moment we can use md's on the beaches only, is that correct? I'll be staying in Bellmullet, Galway and I really want to try to detect in Clew Bay. I figure with Grace O'Malley being based there, there must be something to find .

    I used to watch Time Team and I also thought how stupid of them to use bull dozers before they started to look for anything. I have a degree in Anthro and love archaeology but I sure don't believe they should be the only ones allowed to look for treasure! Someone wrote they never give the md'er credit and the same is true here in the states. Do you have the same problems we have in terms of finding something that may be important to the "native" people? That becomes a nightmare here.

    Take care,
    Sue

    Re: Ireland : Metal detecting

    calm down lads, the law is very strict even if most people dont know it. the way i see it there are two ways to go about it. you can try and convince the people in charge that it is not a money making rackeet, or get a farmers permission under the guise that he lost something valuable on his land and has got help to find it. poaching is an artifact no one wants to see no more. who knows ? may be with a bit of for thought someone might listen.

    Re: Ireland : Metal detecting

    The only laces in The EU that seem to get on OK with detecting, is England/Wales, and Holland. The rest seem to have their heads stuck in the sand.
