And also, are stricter laws really causing metal detectors to drop? Or is it easier to regulate by legalizing metal prospecting and to know which artifacts were unearthed from where? He is asking his question. It is assumed by archaeologists that the 'unscientific extraction' of archaeological artifacts in itself, which occurs when the metal detector user digs and picks up an object from the ground, is inherently damaging. 2. This is true where 'treasure hunters' (whether or not they use a metal detector) remove an object from its archaeological context, thereby irreversibly destroying its association with structures, artifacts and other features at an archaeological site. In her article Suzie Thomas – she completed her PhD looking at relationships between archaeologists and metal detector users in England and Wales – says there are no clear statistics to show how the scale of damage from metal prospecting compares to other threats to cultural heritage. Any citizen or farmer can destroy or unearth an archaeological structure while plowing his field. We also share these concerns of archaeologists that unconscious excavations are increasing cultural damage, so recently enacted laws in the Netherlands and Flanders allowing unprofessional metal detection after a decades-long ban have imposed metal detector search activity within 30 cm of the top of the ground. restrictions were created. 2, art. (Dutch Heritage Act 2016, art. With similar policies, the level of cultural damage will be reduced when the concepts of treasure hunter and metal detector user are separated, when metal detector users are licensed, for example, in exchange for training, and when these people are provided to work in cooperation with archaeologists. 1, Onroerend Erfgoed, 2016, hoofdstuk 33)''. However, it is not known what percentage of the people called treasure hunters are detector users.
There are different depth tests that we perform in deep search detectors, and the final test is 350cm in the form of 1, 2, 3 meters. Depths vary according to the size of the metal, its type, the duration of being under the ground, and the soil structure. As the metal grows, you can detect from the depth, and as it gets smaller, you can detect it from the surface. We often hear from you the question of whether the detector goes deep. There are different depth tests we do for deep search detectors, but of course depending on the depth logic.
You can detect gaps with the detector. The larger the gap, the more deeply it can be detected. As with metal, it affects the depth of space in the soil structure. If the gap is not within the detection range, it will naturally not be detected by the detector. You basically cannot detect places with open mouths with a detector. At the detection distance but not large enough to detect, then the detector will not be able to see the gap again. Deep search detector models can detect underground, closed, airtight, naturally formed or artificially formed cavities within the detection distance.
The high price does not make the detector the best detector. The best detector is the detector model where the user knows its settings and features and can make the right adjustments to get maximum performance according to variable terrain conditions. Detector options are available according to different usage areas and features.
