    Thanks.
    There is one thing I can say with certainty, we always follow the Laws to do with Detecting & unlike some people (including myself) Cru'Dad actually reads all the Laws from it's source.
    If I were breaking any Laws I would need to be pretty dumb to put them on the www.

    Good Morning Customer,

    This is an important message for all users of UKDN Forum. The whole world is currently in crisis through Coronavirus as you will all be aware. Government and NCMD guidelines state that no metal detecting should be taking place at all. Because this is a highly virulent pandemic we EXPECT ALL MEMBERS of UKDN to follow these guidelines until the restrictions are lifted. Firstly as you well know you are bending the rules, that others are following to suit your selfish self. How do you get to a site, have you got a tardis. Any journey can unexpectedly bring you in to contact with other people. As for excercise, the guidelines don’t mean six hour detecting sessions, this you also well know. And as for vitamin d, most people are confined to home (freely) at this time, have you not got a garden.

    @Robfinds.

    I'm not a member of the UKDN or the NCMD (& not required to be either), & non do I have to follow their 'guidelines'.
    The Attorney General has recently stated that we are not a Police State yet & some of the Polices reactions are impeding our Civil Liberties, which our Country have defend vigorously for hundreds of years. I'm not under house arrest.
    Once again, I'm within the Law & your continuous attack is unwarranted. I suggest you hit the ignore button, any further attacks will be reported.

    It's more dangerous to everyone involved to go shopping, than it is to be in the middle of a field where the closest habitation is 2 miles away.
    PS. I have no Garden, therefore can not exercise in it.

    I would not know what to do with that many finds!!! Amazing. Thanks as always for sharing all the cool stuff you guys find!

    OK Cru, I can see now you're beyond reason, I won't bother you again. Just one last thing hough before I go. The deaths for England over the last 24 hours have just been released. 367 most in LonDon and the south east. South east that's near you isn't it. Enjoy your detecting.

    @Robfinds.
    Our area has one of the lowest figures in the Country thanks - nice try.
    It seems people have lost all reason & Common Sense (including some of the Police), it's not me who is beyond reason, it's those that listen too much to the BBC & believe it.(We have a responsibility to educate ourselves with the facts from the right sources) I will continue to be sensible & not put anyone at risk.

    That is a great day and an incredible number of targets, both good and bad.
    I have a question on Roman metal working in England. Was the metal ore mined and smelted in England, or was the raw metal provided by Rome to outposts like those in England for further processing into the various objects.

    Not sure if its cabin fever but trolling doesn't suit you. Maybe you should get out more.

    PS. Those in glass houses. I've seen how seriously you take the Treasure Act Laws, which by the way is punishable by Prison. Remember those that got 10 years, so not try & lecture me on Laws I'm following & your not.

    Also, what happened to 'I won't bother you again'. This is yet another attack.

    I've given this some thought.
    I know this Metal Working Site shows evidence of starting in the Iron Age, maybe about 50BC, & didn't finish until the end of the Roman period 410AD.
    I'm not aware of any nearby mines that they could economically ship the ore from. Therefore, I've concluded that it was mostly recycling old & broken bits & coins (maybe, as I think coins may have had to be done at Mints?) What I do have plenty of evidence of is artefacts that have been cut into small pieces ready for the pot.

    I agree. Recycled metal makes the most sense.
