Treasure Hunter: Pardon My French

"Metal Dectectorist"

Looking for treasure with a metal detector has a long history.

But, with the onslaught of technology, the art form fell out of style. Recent shows like the one shown here, "The Detectorists," (BTW, Andy and I agree that this is possibly the best show ever!), youtube channels (including the Nugget Noggin from Charlotte) and a push by celebrities (Drew Barrymore gives detectors away on her show) have brought the the treasure hunt back into focus across all demographics.
