Metal Detectors in Archaeological Research (1), Adopt the 'Hoik' Approach.

In this made-for-Minelab video, an American archaeologist talks of "Digging hits", giving the impression of an interesting US variant on the theme of McDonaldisation of archaeological field techniques, which might come to be known as the 'Montpellier Antistratigraphic Keyhole Hoik approach'. Is this a case of archaeology reaching for the lowest common denominator, hoiking finds out blind (after bleeps), or is there something (like a statement of the research programme) missing from this narrative? Thought-provoking.
