This video includes some still shots from recent river artifact recoveries. It also includes some video of a live recovery of an *unexploded Hotchkiss artillery shell. I have 5 full days of relic hunting scheduled between now and the end of November, so I should be posting some more relic hunting videos soon.
*Due to the design of this shell and the fact it was submerged in water for 150 years, there was no risk of it exploding accidentally. Nonetheless, these shells should ALWAYS be handled with care and caution and disarmed by someone who knows what they're doing. Such was the case with this shell.
