Relic hunting has exploded during the COVID-19 pandemic with families looking for socially distanced, outdoor activities. Most of these history-lovers are unaware that sensitive historic sites might be damaged in the process.

Meanwhile, archaeologists are alarmed by the damage but rarely reach out to the relic hunting community to find productive alternatives to what they see as “looting.”

It’s time to talk about it!

Join a panel of archaeologists and avocationalists for a civil conversation about positive ways to discover the marvels of the past.


Hosted in cooperation with the Council for Maryland Archaeology. This webinar is part of the Council for Maryland Archeology Webinar series. For more information on the webinar series, visit
