Artefacts Now Being Stolen from Archaeology Store in UK


Legal artefact hunting is not enough for some it seems, and allows the market for portable antiquities to expand unchecked:
Breaking: Reports of theft and vandalism at the Canterbury Archaeological Trust workshop and stores. £1k worth of tools stolen as well as finds including Saxon beads, worked bone + replicas. Police Aware. Please report any suspicious material you come across. Please RT
More:
Unfortunately there has been a very serious break-in and theft from our main archive in Canterbury. Over 850 Anglo-Saxon glass beads, large quantities of coins and metal artefacts, and replicas from our education collection have been taken. Please spread the word!
Some of the stolen items can be seen here.
