  • With Grizzly Adams as a neighbor, I'd be afraid to do much treasure hunting in my yard. I'm not sure I'd want to keep what I found.

  • I doubt I would find anything good. We're on a landfill. =/

  • My father in law had a metal detector and enjoyed "p;ayong" I happened to notice it and mentioned it to him. He told me it had broken years ago and might see about getting another. We bought him one for Christmas and he has been out on the beaches and in his yard. He has picked up quite a bit but he is just having so much fun. I want one too.

  • England and Wales have very strange laws on finds. A Treasure, which this potentially is, is taken into possession by the British Museum who then has the right to keep it and pay the finder "fair market" value or return it to the finder. There are laws in England and the US that restrict the use of metal detectors on public/government property.

    The oldest thing I have ever recovered is a lithic (stone) drill, dated to 3000 BCE to 1000 BCE, usually the digs in my midwest area are contact period or historic.
