No not a joke. Follow the link and you'll be amazed at how long metal detecting has been about. Bet you weren't even within 30 years...

Interesting stuff Jon. I bet it goes back even farther than that if we looked far enough. The Romans were very astute people and I am sure had ways and means which we have not given them credit for.

interesting link jon
 I thought the 1st detector was invented my Thomas Edison and was used to try and locate bullets from a (successful) assassination attempt on a American President.......They didn't find the bullets in the presidents body due to not fully understanding the physics and were confounded by the signals emitted. What they actual were detecting was the bed springs that the patient was lying on.
