    Default Detectorist's

    Any one on here and own a metal detector?

    I've been on an off this year, wondered if anyone else is involved especially locally...
    Get you some of that!

    A bloke in my village found a rare roman coin a few years back and sold it at an auction for nearly 40,000 so I'd say it's worth doing

    I agree... i still get the buzz of the hunt and that you never know what you are going to find. (Detect your garden if you haven't already..... even that was rather fun) The kids had been asking me for a while and i just expected junk, found some loose change a bullet casing possibly from a spitfire and a load of toy cars lol
    Get you some of that!

    When we moved into our new house i had to basically dig the whole garden by hand. It was 6 foot under brambles and crap basically !
    When i eventually cleared all this and could see the ground i was shocked . I could see there were holes all over the place and there was obviously a stone path that led down to the bottom of the garden and there was a rockery sitting proud with a plaque...to which was the previous owners dead dog !
    Now after sorting this out.....i eventually got to the actual firm ground of the garden...and heres a list of what i dug up...all 100% true !

    Buckets
    Rakes
    4 phones
    40 knives and forks
    1 kite
    2 car wheels
    1 motorbike wheel
    2 tyres
    1 motorbike engine
    2 kids bikes
    5 bags of rubbish
    5 taps
    Half a bed
    20 combes
    Dog toys
    Jars
    3 shovels
    A full sized motorbike...

    You seriously couldnt have imagined all that in one garden, but it was all there and took over 7 months to dug up and dispose of !

    1 Hammered coin Elizabeth I 1580 sixpence
    1 Roman Fibula brooch
    2 Silver sixpences
    1 WWI medal
    1 Napoleonic 'Lion Head' Sword belt buckle

    TBH, much prefer it to fishing (and I bloody love fishing!)
