Artifacts are of no use if they are not collected and shared. However, the idea of an unsupervised horde descending on a field and indiscriminately digging up whatever kinda gives me chills. Do it in an orderly fashion, document every piece. Who knows what information that would produce? Without that discipline, there is no information. Even if there is no new information, the chance that there might have been is, at least, anticipated.
Exactly. Unfortunately, too many relic hunters haven't got a clue about how to properly conduct an archaeological dig. They seem to be more concerned with obtaining that artifact and then letting it go to the highest bidder on eBay.
