Swedish Tekkies on the march… …Archaeological Fascism – Stamp it out NOW!

It’s not often you’ll see a vote of thanks on here from me to an undistinguished anti-metal detecting heritologist, but, over on a certain pisspoor blog, its perpetrator details a petition Swedish metal detectorist are formulating – much to the outrage of the usual suspects – is now gaining glorious momentum by the hour. To find out why some heritage halfwits are frothing at the gob, pop over to:-

and add your name in support of our Scandinavian colleagues trying to bring about a Swedish version of the UK’s world-beating Portable Antiquities Scheme.

Should our Swedish colleagues succeed in improving conditions for their hobby in a country where it is illegal for home owners to metal detect in their own gardens, with risk of a prison sentence if they do is an astonishing breach of freedom and Human Rights. If this kind of repression was aimed at the gay community, ethnic minorities, or say the disabled, there would rightly be uproar. It must stop…NOW!

This tyranny is ‘archaeological narcissism’ incarnate and survives in heritage’s darker niches; its sufferers often displaying symptoms such as: –

1. Excessive interest in self-admiration
2. Extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one’s own perceived talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type.
3. Self-centredness arising from failure to distinguish the self from external objects, either in very young babies or as a feature of mental disorder.

‘Archaeological elitism’ enjoys a hand-in-blouse relationship with ‘archaeological narcissism’ – a form of archaeological Fascism. A prime example of the phenomenon surfaced during the Hardy debacle where insults were hurled by heritage ‘Pinko’ rabble-rousers and spin-doctors at six internationally renowned and respected archaeological scholars in an attempt to delouse Hardy’s detector-averse thesis.

A victory for our Swedish friends will not only advance civil freedoms but will also help further expose the cerebral dweorgs’ banal ersatz data that is…Archaeological Fascism.
