I Guess They're Useful After All

It's a toy! No! It's an archaeological tool! We never got much use out of metal detectors when I was a kid; however, looking back I have a feeling they weren't useless, they were just cheap. Thirty years of technological progress and a bigger budget will most likely yield better results.

I'm not crazy about metal detectors. Its great that people find stuff with them, but when they dig they can also do a lot of damage to the archaeological integrity of the site. They can destroy a lot of valuable data getting to the "treasure."
