More Barrel Fish-shooting in UK



"A keen eyed treasure hunter has unearthed a 13th Century crucifix that will now undergo valuation by experts, before interested museums can bid on the item" (Bucks Herald). It's got nothing to do with eyes, reward-hungry hunters are equipped with electronic tools for finding metal items to sell back to society or they'll grab the lot. Museums do not 'bid', Society foots the ransom bill, which is set at a fixed price by the valuation committee.

Vignette: Get a metal detecvtor, can't miss.
