    The John Robertson (a silversmith of Newcastle) token provides us with an interesting commentary on our ‘recent’ UK social history.

    Hi John.
    Here is the problematic video of spanner working a dried out Australian Park, before being warned off by a ranger and Police! [URL=""]
    I've had a gander on the forum he mentioned, but the argument seems to have continued onto Facebook. You've obviously taken an interest in this thread, but I will remain hushed on this one, due to unknown Australian detecting rules and causing a global war, which isn't the best policy for detectorists everywhere.
    Happy new year
