Two months ago my metal detecting team and I were visited in the field by the Swedish State Broadcasting company’s TV science show for kids, Hjärnkontoret. They tell me they’re running the story tonight, somewhere between 1830 and 1900 hours Swedish time. For those who choose to watch, it may be entertaining to know that minutes before the TV crew appeared on site, we found a 4th century ring made of a material we don’t talk to the media about. So in the footage, everybody’s quietly euphoric yet clamming up, while the TV people are being really thrilled to get to try out a metal detector and find iron nails. They were really nice, I wish we could have shared with them.
The show’s supposed to be available here until 30 June in WinMedia and RealMedia formats, though I haven’t been able to make it work myself. Try it!
