I think the thought of most peasants is when you are very lucky, if you find something and the peasants are only interested in finding something big and brilliant. It seems that most farmers think that metal detectors spend hours and hours searching for and finding the big pot of gold that rarely arrives, hence the geeky image of the hobby. This shows the important role that metal detectors and farmers play in allowing them to detect their land. End of story. Click here to access Treasure_Statistical_Release_2011-2012.pdf “This code is both fair and convenient. By adhering to this code, the vast majority of metal detectors will be able to demonstrate that they have a real interest in the past and that they want to benefit from the knowledge they derive from their hobby. The National Council for Metal Detection will replace its existing code, part of its Constitution, with the new one. Compliance with the code when detecting metals is a prerequisite for adherence” The reality is that metal detectives are an activity that is carried out if it is unlikely that the owner of the land is there to monitor, so a written agreement is decisive, but is not the end of the story. Other points to be agreed on are the times and days when the metal detector can look for lanes and parking spaces. Metal detection agreements may require the Finder to comply with the National Council for Metal Detection`s code of conduct, which covers things such as making good dug holes, closing doors, and not compensating crops.
The agreement may also require the metal detector to serve as professional liability insurance. This means that neither our sovereign – the farmer nor the metal detector have the automatic right of ownership of an object found on land in the UK. 1. The owners agree that the hobbyist can use the property described below for the purpose of metal detection, I think this is unfair to most of them. First of all, it means that you can run a farm today, when you are slow, which seems unlikely given what is involved. But more than that, they have no prior knowledge of the subject and therefore depend on what they are told. If you don`t ask, you`ll receive an inch in the air above the metal detection and a strong recommendation to sign a fund agreement (but no warning about specific traps). Your other source of information is the pollster – who has every interest in him saying yes and perhaps having been thrifty with the news. This is a terrible deal and should not be dismissed, because farmers are not the most picky tools in the toolbox. It is the system that stinks. I know a very intelligent, but older peer, who allowed a large gathering in a sensitive but not protected area by law, after the organizers assured him: “It is normal for us to report all our findings.” Yes, it`s true, it will be a first! One of the most important – and certainly the most famous – was the Staffordshire Hoard.
The Staffordshire Hoard is the largest collection of Anglo-Saxon gold and silverware ever found worldwide. Discovered in a field near the village of Hammerwich, near Lichfield, Staffordshire, England, in July 2009, it consists of more than 3500 objects, for a total of more than 5 kilos of gold, 1.4 kilos of silver and 3500 partitioned grenades. What an extraordinary statement! When we talk about the farmer who owns the artifacts, we are of course talking about “if he is the owner of the land” – no one is stupid enough to think that a tenant owns the land or the artifacts. . . .
