My detectorist friend Svante Tibell pointed me to an extremely interesting term paper by Ingrid Ulst, one of Marge Konsa's students at the university of Tartu in Estonia. The title says it all: The Regulation of Metal Detectors and Responsible Metal-Detecting: the Examples of the UK, Sweden and Denmark. Check it out!
Interesting, but there are many Danish articles she should have read before she wrote her essay.
I'm with HÃ¥kan on this one. Interesting topic and some salient points, but she should have her homework better.
What I meant was that she should have [i]done[/i] her homework better.
(Completely OT) "Evidence Neanderthals used feathers for decoration"
Also worth having a look at her paper on metal detecting and illegal excavation in Estonia in the latest Estonia JOurnal of Archaeology http://www.kirj.ee/public/Archaeology/2010/issue_2/arch-2010-14-2-153-1…
I agree that there is also quite a lot of material linked to UK metal detecting that could have been included in the term paper.
