A bit of positive thought is all we need. This might help :D

If you think how many times you have dug an iffy signal with an iron buzz, then think how many of those signals have been left because they didnt tick a box for certain tectorists
Depth has always been a nemesis for our machines, so another layer of finds waiting to be discovered, when a field gets ploughed is testament to that because new stuff always surfaces, specially if the plough handler adds an extra inch

I dont think we have found even half of what lays beneath our feet :ugeek:

Interesting thought. :thumbsup: I wonder how much the course of rivers and streams change over time?

Indeed. We were doing a job at the top of a hill at the bottom of which was a brook. That's all it was, but apparently in medieval times (and probably earlier) this brook was a navigable tributary to the river Deben.

We should always bear in mind that what we see now is almost certainly not what our forebears saw and a little creative thinking can yield results :thumbsup:
