The UK is terrific, the history buried everywhere there is amazing. Like finding King Richard's grave under a parking lot and where gold hoards are found all the time.

Thanks for the link.

They always seem to come up with these amazing finds. You have to credit the laws in Great Britain. In a lot of European countries, it's illegal to use a metal detector unless you have a permit of some type.

This is one recent find. I'd love to go over thereand detect but that's a pipe dream.

I've wondered about that Dutchman; why is it illegal over there to use a MD? Sweden is the same way. Odd.

I just had to look up Sweden. Kind of humorus in a sad way.

Then I did another search and found this thread.

I would image part of the reason some countries don't allow metal detector is unexploded bombs and other ghastly things.

Thanks for that Dutchman.

I was thinking like you Gaius, but then I thought; why Sweden? It wasn't bombed during the war. It stayed neutral.

Man Alive! I thought the reason, whatever it was, would be nutty, but man, it's downright loony. How will they ever find any artifacts if they are so restrictive and make nearly impossible for anyone to hunt for it? All there is then is the nighthawks. Britain is playing it smart and recovering its history and accepting the risk of nighthawks.

Thanks guys. It's an eye opener.
