One thing I wanted to mention concerning the cannon artifact that I've been talking about for a few days, is how easy it would be to miss a nice item like that. Again, a lot of people would pay no attention to an iron object of that size. It is easy to pass over very nice items. I hate to think that I missed something that nice simply because I didn't want to dig it up. No target ID could possibly accurately identify an object like that.
One person I heard from has been working an old home site in a different and very thorough way and as a result coming up with better finds and a lot of interesting information. I'll be able to give you more on that when the project is completed and the results are in. I can't wait.
I haven't talked about the topic for quite a while, but I'll mention once again how important it is to know your detector and how it responds to different environments and targets. For now I'll just say, do a lot of testing.
There is often a lot more under the ground than you might think. It is possible to spend a lot of time detecting and still miss a lot. I hope to have a good thorough study very soon that will illustrate how true that is.
Of course there are high and low-value targets and junk, the key is to make efficient strategic decisions.
New scns of King Tut's tomb reveals a possible new chamber.

I don't have much time today, so that's all for now.
