We now have the benefit of being able to see these 899 artefacts in the National Museum thanks to the illegal actions of a treasure hunter and had he not carried out his illegal actions the chances are they would never have come to light and we would be much the poorer as a result. So, he did the State and us a favour, didn’t he?

    He destroyed their setting which means much of their value is lost forever. Also the state only found the items as there was an attempt to illegally sell them. A grave robber and nothing more.
