I have been metal detecting a short while.  I had this idea one time when I was detecting near a grave yard (50 feet away) and wondered if I should be concerned with digging up remains with an artifact.  Now it seems to pray on mind jsut about anywhere I go detecting.  Anyone ever actually do this or is it just an unfounded concern?  If you were detecting near a battle field (Not on fed park) it stands to reason you could dig up a person with an artifact from an unmarked grave, or used to be marked grave, or something.  What do you do if you do?  Yes dumb question, but I can't seem to get it out of my mind when I go detecting.

Anything is possible but the most likely thing disturbing that you'll ever dig from something which resides as shallow as an artifact does is likely to be someone who met with foul play. Shallow graves are often the sign of a murder victim or of an accidental death. No matter what, report any remains of humans you find. Don't disturb things any more than you already have, either. And for heaven's sake, stay away from graveyards. Some things are best left alone.

Feel that tapping on your shoulder? It wasn't me.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

not a dumb question at all. I have been pondering the same thing lately as well.
