The Crosby Garrett Helmet

I am grateful to Paul Barford for drawing my attention to the publication of D.J. Breeze and M.C. Bishop (eds.) The Crosby Garrett Helmet (The Armatura Press, 2013).

The contents include:
  • Roger Cooke, 'Foreword'
  • David J. Breeze and M.C. Bishop, 'Preface'
  • David Ekserdjian, 'Introduction'
  • M.C. Bishop, 'Description'
  • Dot Boughton, 'Discovery'
  • Darren Bradbury, 'Restoration'
  • Mark Graham and Patricia Shaw, 'Geophysical and Landscape Survey'
  • Chris Healey, 'Archaeological Evaluation'
  • M.C. Bishop and J.C.N. Coulston, 'International Context'
I note that the bibliography does not include a reference to Sally Worrell, 'The Crosby Garrett Helmet', Papers of the Institute of Archaeology 20 (2010) 30-32 (a paper published the same year as the helmet's reported discovery) or my comments in 'The Portable Antiquities Scheme and the Treasure Act: Protecting the Archaeology of England and Wales?', Papers of the Institute of Archaeology 20 (2010) 1-11.

Readers of the booklet will no doubt be looking at the discrepancies between Worrell's first report (and indeed, my comments) and the version of events that appear here in this booklet.

anyone who thinks the PAS is equal "partners" with metal detectors or anyone interested in the "outreach" the PAS is being paid alot of money to support should read worrells is an eye opener into who really is the senior "partner" and just how powerless a very senior member of the PAS was,when trying to protect a very important british archaeological find.
