It is not uncommon to hear archaeologists and cultural heritage advocates argue that looting stems largely from ignorance on the part of locals about the past they are destroying, and that the best way to stop those who would dig is to educate them to care about and embrace heritage as their own. That view is difficult to square with this news report about metal detectorists digging on the battleground at Gettysburg.
Collectors, Dealers and the Truth - There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to accept what is true. Soren Kierkegaard
